Filtering syslog messages



Hi, I can't figure out how to filter the syslog messages. I watch some videos that show a filter option on the screen, but I do not have the filter option. Here's a link to the screen shot:


filter prtg syslog

Thank you for your message.

To filter the Syslog messages, I invite you to click on the test Show filters located on the right (under the number of items displayed): Show filters

You should then see multiple filter (Source, Message, Hostname, Severity, etc.): syslog filters

If you have questions, do not hesitate.

Boy, do I feel stupid. I didn't realize it was off the screen to the right and I had a horizontal scrollbar at the bottom to scroll over. I have not seen any other screen in PRTG where this occurs (maybe that page has a bug?). Thanks for pointing that out in the picture!

You are definitely not stupid ;). There might indeed be an issue with the table scaling which I have forwarded internally for investigation. If that's the case, this will be fixed in one of the next versions of PRTG.

Have a nice day.
