Report for Tracking System Changes



As changes are made to monitors and schedules for example, it states in the log that a change was made to a schedule and to "See history for details."

However, there is no place to view the history of changes to this particular schedule. Where can we view that, and where can we report on such items?

When editing the schedule for a sensor or device and it says that you can see the history for the details, there is another tab that you can click on to see the history, it looks like a small notebook.

Well, if there is no method for exporting this history, is it at least tracked in an event log that I could pull the data out of?

If you use the API, you would be able to export the history for a device to XML. the URL would look something like


Where the ID is the ID of the device or sensor. You can read more about this in the API section of your PRTG installation by clicking on Setup -> PRTG API and looking for the section about PRTG HTTP API: XML Table Query Builder. There you can also see the other formats that this can be exported to.

Thanks for the input. However, does this info also get tracked in a PRTG log file? I'd like to use our log file monitoring software to report on this.

No unfortunately this information is not stored in any logs that are readable directly in the file system.
