Enable limits for a group?




I am using PRTG to monitor the number of broadcasts and multicasts per second to monitor for broadcast storms. I want to send a notification when reaching certain levels. I can do this when editing channels and settings limit and then trigger on the warning state but I don't want to do this manually for 300+ sensors. The other method I can think of is to set broadcasts as the primary channel but I don't seem to be able to do this with multi edit either, will this even work. Is there some way to edit all my objects at once?

Dear Daniel,

I'm very much afraid there is no better or more efficient way available in the moment. Editing the configuration file can sometimes help, however you would in your case still need all the IDs from the 300+ sensors, and would need to go through the configuration file for each ID. Which is also quite a lot to do.

Best Regards.
