IS there a way to segregate all the 5 star and 4 star logs in PRTG and download them



Your Vote:



We are trying to check the frequecy of critical and high alerts, hence we require the logs to check. Is there a way to pull only the critical and high alert logs of all the sensors that were up and down for 1 month in PRTG? Please advice

we appreciate your inquiry.

Unfortunately it is not possible to filter the Sensor's log by priority in the Log-entry list.
Over the API, there's a parameter called filter_priority (I.E.: ...&filter_priority=5) but that setting can't be used in content=messages API Calls.

The only alternative would be (over the API) to query the list of sensors with a specific priority and then perform individual calls to get the messages for those individual Sensor ID's.

The Sensors API call would be

To get the list of sensors with priority 3 ( * ) http://yourprtg/api/table.xml?content=sensors&output=xml&columns=objid&filter_priority=3 The Sensor's Messages API call would be: http://yourprtg/api/table.xml?content=messages&output=xml&columns=objid,datetime,status,message&id=SENSORID

Please also note that all API calls should contain the following for authentication: &username=prtgadmin&password=prtgadmin or, when using the passhash instead: &username=prtgadmin&passhash=123456789123456789
