Write sensor result to disk



Hello, I setup an SMTP sensor to "Write sensor result to disk (Filename: "Result of Sensor [ID].txt")" Where can I retreive the log file ? The folder "\Logs (Sensors)" doesn't exist on our server. Thanks and regards, Arnaud

Hi Arnaud,

Check the Core Server tab of the PRTG Administration Tool, the correct folder is shown at the bottom. Within this path, you'll find the sensor logs (among others) :)

Kind regards,
