Hello,

we are trying to Monitor a weekly Tape Back Up via BackUp Exec. We configured the Exec Server to write the Errors an Warning into the Windows Eventlog. We also added the WMI Eventlog sensor to our PRTG. So far everything works as excpected.

Our Problem is the Unit in which the WMI-Sensor is measuring the results. Per default it is Messages per Second. Our Tape BackUps run weekly, thus the montored Events appear like one Message per 604800 seconds.

Is there a different unit to measure the Events in the Logs?

TIA!!
