Does the event log sensor support OR conditions or REGEX?



I'm looking for more information about how the event log sensor works. I'm using the event log sensor to trap "User Account Created" (event 624) or "Global Group Member Added" (event 632) events. I'd prefer to do it with one sensor instead of two. Is this possible?

Dear Ismael,

I'm very much afraid in the current version of PRTG (7.3.3), the Eventlog Sensor can only monitor for one event at a time (so regex is not possible). The Eventlog sensor will be improved for PRTG 8, but I can't give any details on that in the moment. Please bear with us.

Best Regards.
