PRTG 9 Manual: Reports

Reports are used to analyze historic monitoring results over a specified time such as one or more days, one month, or an entire year. You can create reports for all, or only for certain sensors.


PRTG includes a powerful reporting engine for ad-hoc, as well as scheduled report generation in HTML and PDF format. Thus, reports can be run on demand or on a regular basis (e.g. once a day). You can create reports for one single sensor, or you choose a range of sensors you want to create a report for. The content and layout of the report is controlled by the report template of your choice and is the same for all sensors in a report.

Automatic Averaging

For performance reasons, PRTG automatically averages monitoring data when calculating data for large time spans. Data is then averaged regardless of the selected average interval.

Up to 40 days


40 to 500 days

60 minutes/1 hour or larger

A report for a time span of more than 500 days is not possible. If you try to set a larger time span, it will be reduced to 365 days automatically.
