You can use reports to analyze historic monitoring results over a specified time such as one or more days, one month, or an entire year, and for your system configuration. 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. So you can run reports on demand or on a regular basis (for example, 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. It is also possible to create HTML reports for your system configuration.

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.

Working With Reports

For detailed information on how to create, edit, and schedule reports, please see the following sections:

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.

Time Span in Report

Minimum Level of Detail (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.

Configuration Reports

Configuration reports are a special type of reports and show the current PRTG configuration. They are available for Maps, Reports, User & User Groups, and System Configuration. PRTG generates these reports in a new browser window as HTML page in the common reports style of PRTG (for example, like Historic Data Reports of sensors). You can use configuration reports, for example, to file and document changes to the configuration of PRTG.

The particular configuration reports contain the same information as you can see on the overview pages of Maps, Reports, as well as on the system administration tabs User Accounts and User Groups. The configuration report System Configuration includes the current system administration settings of the tabs User Interface, Monitoring, Notification Delivery, Core & Probes, and Cluster. Configuration reports are interactive so you can click on available links to go to the corresponding webpage in the PRTG web interface.
