Hello there,

Yes, that's right. The %message placeholder is include the syslog message. For more details, please refer to the following manual: https://www.paessler.com/manuals/prtg/list_of_placeholders_for_notifications

I have tried using this placeholder but the %message did not populate using the original syslog message.

What I did was:

  1. Create a notification template to send syslog, named "Syslog". Enable "Send Syslog message", message to be sent is: %datetime, %device, %message.
  2. Create a syslog receiver sensor. Warning filter: severity[4-6].
  3. Under notification triggers, add state trigger. When sensor state is Warning for at least 0 seconds, perform "Syslog" notification template.
  4. Send a syslog message with severity 4 to the syslog receiver sensor.
  5. The syslog notification was sent out. But the value of the %message field sent was "0.02 #/s (Warnings) is above the warning limit of < 0.01 #/s in Warnings".
