Custom Syslog messages table

Hi everyone

I'm running version 18.2.40.1683+ on Stable channel using windows.

I want to customise the syslog sensor, messages screen to exclude certain coloumns and to customise the remaining coloumns width. I don't want "proc id", "app name" and "msg id" for example.

The new layout wastes almost half my screen width so I would like to better utilise my desktop space. I've searched around but can not find anything conclusive as to which css file to edit where.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Other than that, the new interface looks great.

Cheers Marcel

Hi Marcel,

Thanks for your inquiry, we appreciate your contact regarding this matter. I unpublished the last two answers cause they are not really related to your inquiry.

This is not possible by default, but you can edit the "styles_custom_v2.css" to make changes in the interface. Please note this is not officially supported and can cause issues in future updates. The default path to this file is "C:\Program Files (x86)\PRTG Network Monitor\webroot\css".

Please add the following lines to edit the table in the messages tab:

.form-udpmessage .messagetable .col-msgid,
.form-udpmessage .messagetable .col-procid,
.form-udpmessage .messagetable .col-name {display: none !important;}

.form-udpmessage .messagetable .col-message {width: 38.09522% !important


For any further questions or issues, we're glad to help.


Kind regards,
Birk Guttmann, Tech Support Team

Hi Birk

Thanks for your reply. Much appreciated. I'll give this a try later today and let you know.

Out of curiosity, is this something Paessler would be looking into as a future feature (ability to customise columns and layout)? Would be very useful.

Anyway, thanks again.

Regards Marcel.

Hi Marcel,

We are always trying to improve different parts in PRTG. I'm not sure if this will be implemented, since there are some other things higher rated in the pipeline, too.


Kind regards,

Hi Birk

Thanks for the info, it worked like a charm. I even used your info as a template to make changes to other tables, now that I know what to look for.

Thanks and regards Marcel.
