PRTG 9 Manual: Application Programming Interface (API) Definition

The PRTG Application Programming Interface (API) enables you to access monitoring data and manipulate objects using HTTP requests, run your own written sensors and notifications, and customize the web interface.

Detailed HTTP API Documentation

An interactive documentation of the API is integrated into your PRTG installation: Login to the web interface and select Setup | PRTG API from the main menu.

In different tabs, the documentation provides information about:

  • HTTP API: Access monitoring data and manipulate monitoring objects using HTTP requests (includes an interactive query builder)
  • Custom Sensors: Create your own sensors for customized monitoring
  • Custom Notifications: Create your own notifications to send alarms to external systems
  • Website Styling: Customize the look and feel by adding your own CSS statements

You can also have a look at Paessler's PRTG demo installation's API documentation. But only the documentation that comes with your PRTG installation fits exactly the PRTG version you are using.
