Hi,

Is there a sensor that I can use that sends me a notification once the machine has been restarted?

Thanks, Aviv Malka

Hello Aviv,

In order to monitor a machine restart you can use the WMI Event Log Sensor. In the sensor settings, enable "Filter by ID" and enter the ID 6005. This ID is synonymous to system startup.

Hello Aviv,

In addition to Jochen's suggestion, you might also want to have a look at the Windows System Uptime Sensor

Dear,

I have identified that it is worth using the "SNMP system activity time" sensor. Does anyone recommend me?
