PRTG Notification Template Bug



When setting a notification template to send a log to WinEventLog using the %laststatus placeholder, when a bandwidth sensor goes from "Down" to "Unusual", the %laststatus still reports as "Down" even though the new status is "Unusual". When going from "Down" to "Warning", the %laststatus reports correctly as "Warning".

Thank you for the post Tony,

Could you confirm the exact Sensor type you use? You can see this in the right pane when you open the sensor's overview page.
