PRTG Manual: Logs
The Enterprise Console has a tab-like interface. Using the tabs you can navigate through various pages with information about your monitored objects, such as your network status and monitoring results, for example, as well as access maps, reports, tickets and settings.
There is documentation available for the following tabs:
The Logs list shows all past activities and events of your PRTG monitoring setup. This is useful to keep track of all important activities and, for example, to check whether messages were sent. In a typical setup, a huge amount of data is produced here. As the activity of every single object is minuted, you can use this data to check exactly if your setup works as expected.
There are two options to call the logs list: Either you click the Log tab while you view an object's details on the Devices menu tab, or you choose the Logs entry from the menu tabs bar.
Click the Logs entry in the menu tabs bar to show a list of all log entries of a PRTG core server.
You can either view the entries of one or all servers. If you have configured more than one PRTG core server and you want to view entries from all servers in your PRTG Servers setup, simply select All PRTG Servers from the server selection in the upper right corner.
You can enable a filter to only show log entries of a certain event from the categories Status Changes, System Events, and Object History. Choose a category from the Show menu. The second drop down menu shows all possible event types for the selected category. Select an entry to only show events of the respective event type. Choose a sensor status for status changes, Probe Related , Auto Discovery , Notifications , or Status Messages for system events, or a system object for object history. You can also define the time span for which you want to show logs.Use the date time picker to enter the date and time.
The list can show up to one hundred entries at a time. Use the arrow symbols above the list to show other items. You can jump to the beginning of the list, or browse through it hundred by hundred. If the list has more than one entry, you can also sort the items by the contents of a certain column. To sort, simply click the header of the column you want to sort by once or twice.
