How can I activate log writting?



In answer "How and where does PRTG store its data?" I read about sensor's logs in Data Folder. Text file based debug logs of the sensors (files named after the ID of a sensor; logs are written only if activated in a sensor's settings). Tell me please, how can I do this?

thank you very much for your KB-Post. This actually is a debug-option, only available on certain sensor types. It's intended for debug issues only, and can be activated on the "Settings"-Tab of the sensor (but not all sensor types, as said): http://abload.de/img/sensorjal2w.png

best regards.
