PRTG Manual: Logs
Logs show all past activities and events in your monitoring setup. With the logs, you can, for example, review past user activities, system events, or check whether messages were sent. In a typical setup, a huge amount of log data is produced. Because PRTG records the activity of every single object, you can use this information to check if your setup works as required.
You can choose from several filters to navigate the log entries.
For more information, see section Working with Table Lists.
There are two ways to open the logs list. Either click the Log tab of a probe, group, device, or sensor, or click Logs in the main menu bar.
Probe, group, device, and sensor pages have tabs that you can use to navigate between the different options. For example, you can view your network's status, view monitoring results, or change settings.
