Syslog Sensor v9



I have a number of Syslog sensors which we working as expected prior to upgrading from v8 to v9 (now at v9.1.4.1840). Each sensor was set to a specific sender, which then gave me a log of all messages sent by that particular sender.

Since going to v9, the "Specify Sender" option appears to have no effect, in that the log contains all messages from all syslog sensors.

Is there a fault with this?

Dear Ian,

unfortunately this seems to be a bug. A fixed version of PRTG should be available next week. Please bear with us.

best regards.
