Monitor AD User Login/Logoff




it it possible to monitor / track / create a history of User Logins/Logoffs to track user activity ? whenever a user uses his login/pass at a terminal server, a client or whatever it should be monitored.

would be nice if it is possible to represent that in a .csv any other format for archiving.

possible ?

thank you very much for your KB-Post. I'm very much afraid this is currently not really possible with PRTG. You may be able to come close to this with Eventlog-Sensors (and filtering for the necessary events), but in domains with high numbers of users, this would then mean high number of Eventlog sensors.

best regards.

Has there been any updates to PRTG to support monitoring Active Directory Logins?

Thank you very much for your KB-Reply. I'm afraid the state is still the same as in the response from 2013.

Any chance of this functionality? Would be really handy.

I'm afraid there are no native sensors with this. It will have to be script based custom sensors then.
