Hello,

are you referring to the "Logs"-Page in the PRTG main menu or the "Logs (System)"-Folder in PRTGs data directory?

best regards

I'm referring to the Log Tab in the sensors page or the LOG tab for the overall PRTG.

Then maybe the PRTG API will help, you can access the 'recent messages' of an objects Log in PRTG using the PRTG API, please see "Setup"->"PRTG API"->"Live Data" and select "messages: list of most recent log entries" under "Table content" in the XML Query builder.

dannriag, thank you for the KB-Post. I'm afraid filtering by date needs to be done in a separate step with another tool. The PRTG API can't do this.

Not sure if this is new for a later version, but I'm filtering on deleted items (filter_status) between 2 date ranges (filter_dstart, filter_dend)

/api/table.xml?content=messages&start=0&filter_dstart=2018-11-15&filter_dend=2018-11-16&columns=objid,datetime,type,name,status,message&filter_status=506

This seems to be returning the right time/date range.

Not sure if this is what you were looking for, but might be useful for someone else in the future
