Custom Sensor Logfile



I have created a custom XMLEXE sensor on a remote probe. In the properties I enabled the option write EXE results to disk, but there is not even the folder Logs (Sensors). I tried this on other remote probes and there it works perfekt

Any Ideas? Thomas

Hi Thomas,

What's the configured data folder? It should be in <data path>\Logs (Sensors)\. The actual data path is disclosed in the PRTG Administration Tool's Core Server tab, at the bottom :)

PRTG Scheduler | PRTGapi | Feature Requests | WMI Issues | SNMP Issues

Kind regards,

Hi Stephan

This was the mistake. I changed it the default and now it works.

Thank You
