How so? Are the values certain sensors are returning matching up to the unusual criteria defined under Setup -> System Administration -> System & Website, under the "Unusual Detection" heading?

i changed it to 1% now to see... my prtg is running less then a month, maybe there is a minimal learning time required? thanks
