Is there a way to get notified once PRTG records to its log a new entry with message like "Error sending "EXE"?

Hi there,

There is no native option to filter for the error messages in PRTG and to create a notification. You can write your own script to parse the information. You can for instance start with an API call to extract all messages of the current day:

/api/table.json?content=messages&filter_status=13&filter_drel=today

The required syntax of custom sensor is described on the Setup | PRTG API | Custom Sensors page.

Best regards, Felix
