Hi Patrick,

You could enable "Log Stream Data to Disk" in the sensor's "Settings" tab, which will write the received flowdata into a csv file in the probe system's data directory. So in case the sensor is running on a Remote Probe, you will the find the files there, otherwise on the PRTG server itself.

Path should be always %programdata%\Paessler\PRTG Network Monitor\StreamLog if not changed to a different location in PRTG Administration Tool on the probe system.

Kind regards,

Erhard

Hi Erhard,

Thank you for your fast reply. I have found the data and it shows each individual flow. Is there a web interface to display this data? If not, if something similar planned in a further version?

Thanks, Patrick

Hi Patrick,

At this point there are no plans for displaying the data in the webinterface. Thing is, this "raw data" is only kept for generating the toplists in the sensor and then "thrown away" when done. Writing the streams to csv is only there for debugging purposes to see what's coming in.

Kind regards,

Erhard
