File Content Sensor with notifications




I am trialing PRTG and am trying to setup a log file watcher to check for a key word. I have managed to get this to work but as this is a program log, the key word is in the file a lot. So my question is can you just get the sensor to mail out the line with this key word if this occurs again but not show the sensor as in warning state as this will always show as warning. Thanks Chris

I'm afraid it is not possible to check only for the last occurrence of a keyword. PRTG will always check the whole file for the given term.
Best regards
