Is it possible to change the default settings of a new created probe?




I want to change the default settings when a new probe is up.

For ex. The memory has 20% as default value.

I want to change for ex the warning to 10% and have error at 5% Also the disks warning on 12% and 6%.

This will solve problems for me. Now I have to manually change all values for the probes.

Dear Erik,

I'm afraid it's not possible to change the default value, which is hard-coded. Please change the limit-settings manually. We do plan to improve this, so that multi-editing is possible. Please bear with us.

Best Regards.
