While the Beta phase of PRTG 9 is still running, we will introduce some of the great new features here. Today we want to show you how you can build your own sub-trees using the brand new "Libraries" function.

Customers frequently asked us for a feature allowing alternative views of the device tree, as well as further easy filtering options available directly from the device tree. We listened to the community and created an entirely new feature: the "Libraries". This new function is available from the main menu.

Users can now add one or more "Libraries" to their configuration. Each Library contains an alternative view of your device tree and you can add several "Library Nodes" to it: these could be single sensors (!), devices, or entire sub-trees. All this can be done easily using drag&drop.

This enables you, for example, to create lists of sensors displayed the way you want to see them, regardless of what device they're originally running on. This can be useful to monitor use cases, such as—for instance—monitoring all bandwidth sensors in your tree.

Additionally, you can filter any node for certain properties. For each node, you can choose to show the entire sub-tree, or to

  • filter by sensor type
  • filter by sensor status
  • filter by specific tags

All filters are applied dynamically, so if any tags or sensor states change in your monitoring, or if you add new sensors, the library view is updated with the next refresh.
