We are migrating to PRTG from SolarWinds, but we need to know if PRTG can register an a cold-reboot or restart on a monitored device, just the way SolarWinds do.

SolarWinds on a log screen it register unreacheable states, reacheble states, change states of an interface and reboots.

there is any way to view this on PRTG

Hello Emilio,

You can use for example an SNMP Uptime Sensor for this and configure a limit in the sensor. When a device gets rebooted, the uptime counter is being reset to 0 and by setting a limit for example to show an error when uptime is below 5 minutes, this would indicate then that the device was rebooted.
