We are getting a warning message saying that 202 items (Probe Open Requests) is above the warning limit of 100 items. Can someone explain what this message is referring to?

Thank you,

Hello,

the Probe Health Sensors collect certain internal information for diagnostically purposes. As for example the Open Requests, which are these requests on which the PRTG Probe is still waiting for responses from the monitored devices. 200 is quite a high number here, you might want to consider trying longer scanning intervals.

best Regards

Do you have a recommendation on how long we should make the scanning intervals? We currenlty have about 850 probes in use.

Thank you,

It's nearly impossible to give a 'good' and general answer to that, it depends on the current intervals used as well on the sensor types, etc.. A start is probably just to try a interval which is twice as long as the current.
