Hello, I have a question. It is possible to monitor the event viewer in the PRTG. If so, how does the technology use it. Thank you for your response.

Thank you for your post.

You can use the WMI Event Log sensor to monitor the event viewer. As the name suggests the sensor uses WMI in order to retrieve the information.

Kind regards,
