extract logs from linsys router



Hello, is it possible to have PRTG Network Monitor extract the different log tables from the Linksys routers, specifically the rv082? I would like to automatically monitor the outgoing and incoming log tables and tabulate the ip addresses, ports, etc. Currently they are emailed to me and I have some scripting to do this, but was looking for a more automated solution.

Thanks, Nick.

out of the box this is not possible. You would have to use a custom sensor and do some scripting as well.

The custom sensor script would need to pick the logs from the router and then process them and then return an output readable to PRTG.

Thanks - any idea as to if there is an alternate solution that works out of the box? I'm not 100% sure what I'm searching for, so I'm not getting much luck on the search results.
