ProtoMon can write custom text logs on every monitor check. Select the Options - Logging Settings main menu item to configure the global logging settings. You will see the following dialog:

Logging settings

Check the Enable logging option to enable the custom logs for all monitors. Then specify the logs filename template. This template can include the date/time and monitor info variables (monitor name, type, last response time, status, and verdict string) which will be substituted with the actual values on every monitor check. This allows you to specify different logging schemes: one log file for all monitors, daily log file for all monitors, personal log file for every monitor, personal daily (weekly, monthly, annual) logs for every monitor...

Failure logs template is a string that will be written to the log file every time then the monitoring check fails. It can include any custom text as well as the previously mentioned variables. For example:

{{DateTime}} Monitor Failed: {{MonitorName}}; Reason: {{Verdict}}

Success logs template is a string that will be written to the log file on every successful check. If you wish ProtoMon to log only the first successful check after each failure, additionally select the Log success only on monitor restore option.

You can also set a specific logging options for every particular monitor. Double click the monitor to open the monitor editor dialog. Switch to the logging tab and enter the custom setting there.

Logging settings override

Check the Override default logging settings option, then specify whether you wish to enable logging for this monitor or not. Other fields are the same as in the global settings dialog.
