Hi there,

Thank you very much for your contact.

Please check the sensor's Overview or Logs tab for that information. The Overview tab should indicate the user such as:
[ [ Paused at 24.04.2019 07:38:07 by Sebastian Kniege ] ]: Paused by user

Do you see the information here?

Best regards,

What version of PRTG are you currently running and can you confirm to see such few information also when being signed in as 'prtgadmin' user account?
