Can I get a csv with historical alarms from prtg?



I tried to get a list of historical alarms form prtg in Excel. I did this using a call like this: https://prtg.***.**/api/table.xml?content=messages&output=csvtable&columns=objid,datetime,parent,type,name,status,message&count=1000000&start=1 but then I get nothinig more then about 88000 messages. I would like to get the whole alarm message history for at least a year back. Is that possible? For sensor data it is.

Dear Pieter

The messages are usually available for the last 30 days. You can change the value for future alarms via Setup / System Administration / Cores & Probes, "Historic Data Purging" / "Logfile Records".
