how can i store windows eventlog in prtg-database



i have several windows machines, that overwrite the security-eventlog after 48 hours.

we want to store the information of the security-eventlog in the prtg-db so we can keep this information for 30 days.

as PRTG shows (and consequently stores) only the last event message per scan of an Eventlog sensor, it might not be the best 'place' to do this. sorry.

best regards.
