I am looking for the best way to monitor windows server backup. Some previous knowledge base posts have led me to believe the eventlog sensor isn't able to read the the logs needed to monitor this backup service. Does anyone have any recommendations on how best to monitor the backup event? I've been looking at using the PTF.EventlogReader, is this still the best option for monitoring windows server backups?

You could try Heath Trengove's powershell sensor from GitHub: https://github.com/htrengove/PRTGwindowsbackup/

Thanks, Heath!
