Can I alter the default scanning interval for a particular type of sensor?

I want to run a variety of sensors on our servers but not risk overloading them. So ideally all the sensors should have a larger scanning interval, e.g. 1 hour. I see the PING defaults to 30s and some of the WMI sensors use 10m.

Dear Jonathan,

it's not possible to change the default scanning interval. But you can change the current scanning interval editing the setting on group/device level if it's inherited. Or use the multi-edit to change it on several sensors at once.

best regards.
