Why am I getting messages of the type "1000 is below the limit value of 1000"?



I'm getting a message for a sensor with defined limites along the lines of "1000 MB is below the limit value of 1000 MB". How can this be?

limit prtg sensor value

The computation is working fine and the information provided is correct. The issue in this case has to do with the rounding up of the monitored values. Basically, the internal comparison takes place on a byte level and these are rounded up when converted to Megabyte. As such, the MB values do match, but the actual computational values used by the program do not (could be, for example, 999.99 instead of 1000.00).
