Adding a syslog sensor



Is it possible to create a syslog sensor to receive syslog messages from just one specific device? If so, how do I go about doing that?

Hello there,

Thank you for your post.

If you want that the Syslog Receiver Sensor to collect the messages from only one specific device, then you need to create a new device in PRTG with the address of the target that is sending the syslog messages.

For more information please see the "Remarks" section of the sensor manual.

Kind regards,
