How can I change the down behavior of multiple SNMP traffic sensors?



I just setup up 800 SNMP traffic sensors. they all defaulted to no alarm when disconnected. Is there a way to bulk update the show alarm when disconnected (recommended) setting?

Dear Sean,

it should be possible with the Multi-Edit and "Sensors by Type" (in the main menu of PRTG). But usually it will only show 500 sensors max., so you might have to repeat the process

Best Regards.
