Multiple HTTP sensors for EqualLogic Array



Hello, I'm new to SNMP monitoring and PRTG. We've been performing auto-discovery on our environment and on some devices it's creating 2 HTTP sensors (HTTP2 and HTTP3) on one of our servers. What are these? The two graphs are different.

If PRTG's auto-discovery detects web servers on one of your devices, it automatically creates an HTTP sensor to monitor the homepage of each web server (e.g. on different ports of this device). The HTTP sensor returns the loading time of the page's source code.

For detailed information, please see PRTG 8 Manual: HTTP Sensor

If you don't need these sensors, you can simply delete them (right-click on them).
