WMI Event log sensor exclusions



Is there any way (GUI or maybe regex) to exclude specific errors while using WMI event log sensor? I found similar question (the answer is "no"), but it happend a year ago - is there any new features? I mean always there are errors that do not require any actions, so I'd like not to pay attention to them.

Thank you for the answer. Do you plan built-in exclusions support in PRTG 9 or 10?

I'm afraid currently it's not planned for future PRTG versions.

I would appreciate if you consider this in a future version. It is nice to have a filter to get alerts on specific events, but it is much more important to get an alert on any event except those that can be safely ignored.

Kind regards
