This modular input polls and retrieves data from Paessler PRTG Network Monitor. The PRTG API is excellent and provides access to almost all data. The typical use case is to periodically retrieve sensor status and values.
The recommended format for retreiving data is the JSON format, and this should work correctly with minimal customisation. If you want to use other data formats then you will need to create Splunk parsing properties and possibly field extractions etc.
