How to forward logs and offenses to another server



There are several PRTG servers in my Network. I want to aggregate some important logs and status from all of these servers in a third party log server.

for example, I want to know how force PRTG to forward all income logs with x severity to another log server.

Is there any way to adjust PRTG to relay some specific logs and offenses to another server?

do you want to forward the very same message received to another device?
If so, I'm afraid this is not possible with PRTG.
The only way here would be setting up a Syslog-Notifcation which uses the placeholder %message and use it on a "Change Trigger" on the receiving Syslog-Sensor.
Best regards
