PRTG Multi Disk Sensor & Limits Per Channel



Hello, We've recently rolled out PRTG monitoring of all of our servers and it's working wonderfully. I do have one question in relation to WMI Disk Free (Multi) sensors & limits.

I have some servers which have consistently full volumes (under 5% free) due to the way the application works. I'd like to "override" the limits on the sensor "settings" tab with those on the "channel" tab for these servers. This way C: drive can still have the default 25/10% limtis, and the data volumes can have a lower limit perhaps 5%/2% or similar.

Failing that, is it possible to prevent the sensor from monitoring one channel (such as F: drive for example).

if you want to exclude a drive from monitoring, you could consider using the WMI Free Disk (Single Drive) Sensors. One for each of the drives you want to monitor. The other option is of course to configure the limits on the "Channels"-Tab, but no limits for the F-Drive Channel, and then exclude this channel from being displayed in tables and graphs.

Best Regards.
