how to set probe and create report for monitoring usage of workstation



Hi, our management wants to get report every month on usage of our windows workstations. Windows Uptime sensor is not good as it's not reset in sleep. Final result of report should be something like table with computer (=probe as computers are in multiple sites) , day of month and total time of uptime for that particular day.

Could be done this with PRTG? Thanks

I'm afraid that this cannot be achieved with the basic reporting function of PRTG, sorry. I was thinking of a custom script on each machine, which is triggered if the machine is shut down and writes the uptime in a file, but this solution is completely independent from PRTG.
