Hi, I want sensor and a report that will monitor for when a list of usernames has logged into a device.

The report needs to pickup from the sensor and show what username has logged on to what device and at what time.

Is this possible?

Thanks

Hi Andy,

This depends on the device you are referring to, i.e. a VPN firewall or a Windows Server. You can use the Windows Logged In Users Sensor to monitor the number of users logged into a Windows machine, or filter the logged in users by a comma separated list of names. Please note that the user names and time stamps of the login are not stored by PRTG. You will need to write your own custom sensor to achieve such a logging.

Best regards
