Where is the Log Stream Data to Disk (for Debugging)?



I am trying to see what kind of traffic is listed under the "Other" channel. I know NM creates a log when I enable the logging for the "Other" channel but I'm having a hard time trying to find the new file for review.

You'll find the stream logs in the \StreamLog sub-directory of your data directory, as defined under the Core Server tab of the PRTG Server Administrator tool.

I do not see a \StreamLog directory in that directory:

My only choices are:

 Volume in drive C has no label.
 Volume Serial Number is 6609-1288

 Directory of C:\ProgramData\Paessler\PRTG Network Monitor\V7

Did you turn on the raw data logging function for any particular sensor? These logs (and the respective directory) are only generated if you explicitly turn on the function for any particular NetFlow or Packet Sniffing sensor.
