at the moment PRTG does not provide an report-/export-function for the syslog messages, but we are planning to implement this. Unfortunately I can not provide an ETA when this will be available.

Kind regards,

hello, "At this moment" and "we are planning to implement". This was in July of 2020. Is there an ETA on this feature?

Hi there,

There is still no ETA for this feature. However here is a KB article on this matter which also proposes workarounds for it: https://kb.paessler.com/en/topic/59970-export-syslog

Kind regards
