You could also use the HTTP Advanced sensor with the following URL: http://<your-prtg-server>/group.htm?id=0&tabid=1&username=<your-prtguser>&passhash=<your-passhash>

...and make it watch for the keyword PRTG System Administrator (or whatever username you use for logging in). This way you can monitor if login works properly.

In my case, I found the services were up, ping normal, the login page shown. However, all the consoles failed to login, keep loading after enter username and password via web browser. Finally, I need to restart the core server service to resume the service. I only set ping sensor before, but failed to monitor the problem. Is that monitor the Windows services via SNMP could solve the problem? I also tried use HTTP transaction sensor, but failed to find the ketword on the welcome page which after login.
