PRTG 9 Manual: Add a Sensor

Note: This documentation refers to the PRTG System Administrator user accessing the Ajax interface on a master node. For other user accounts, interfaces, or nodes, not all of the options might be available as described. When using a cluster installation, failover nodes are read-only by default.

There are different ways to manually add a sensor to an existing device.

  • On the welcome screen, click on the Add Sensors Manually option
  • or select Sensors | Add Sensor from the main menu.

An assistant will appear, leading you through two steps. For faster setup, you can select Add Sensor... in the context menu of a device to which you want to add the new sensor. This will skip step 1 and lead you directly to step 2.
