PRTG Manual: Sensors
The Enterprise Console has a tab-like interface. Using the tabs you can navigate through various pages with information about your monitored objects, such as your network status and monitoring results, for example, as well as access maps, reports, tickets and settings.
There is documentation available for the following tabs:
Viewing lists of sensors is a great way to keep an eye on your network status because you can select which kind of sensors you want to see. You can filter by various parameters like object or sensor type, for example, and current sensor status.
For technical reasons, this function is available for one server at a time only. If you have configured more than one PRTG core server, choose one server from the server list in the upper right corner.
Click the Sensors entry in the menu tabs bar to show a table list of all sensors. You can enable a filter to only show certain sensors. To do so, choose from three different drop down menus to build a filter. With each filter you can further decrease the number of shown sensors.
- By Type
The second drop down menu shows all sensor types available in your monitoring setup. Select an entry to only show sensors of this type. The default value is All Types .
- By Status
The third drop down menu shows all possible sensor states. Select an entry to only show sensors that currently show this status. Choose between All States , Down , Down (Acknowledged) , Down (Partial) , Warning , Up , Paused , Unusual , and Unknown . The default value is All States .
If you click a sensor symbol in the page header bar, you can directly view a sensor list filtered by the selected sensor status for the selected server.
If you have filtered out all sensors and the list below shows no entries, remove some filters by reverting them to the default values.
In the column Last Value , the table only shows the last value of the sensor's primary channel .
The list can show up to one hundred entries at a time. Use the arrow symbols above the list to show other items. You can jump to the beginning of the list, or browse through it hundred by hundred. If the list has more than one entry, you can also sort the items by the contents of a certain column. To sort, simply click the header of the column you want to sort by once or twice.
From this list view, you can select multiple items to apply the same action to them, for example, Edit | Check Now .
You can select multiple items by the following means (you can also combine them):
- Click and hold your left mouse key while pointing to the lines you want to select
- Hold the Ctrl key while clicking to toggle the selection status of a single line
- Click a line and hold the Shift key while clicking another line to select all lines in between.
