Custom WMI Counter Maximum

I created a custom WMI sensor to measure Network IO Wait for SQL Server. Here is the query:

SELECT NetworkIOWaits FROM Win32_PerfFormattedData_MSSQLMSSQLSERVER2008_MSSQLMSSQLSERVER2008WaitStatistics WHERE name='average wait time (ms)'

However, it won't display any data over 2000 ms. The graphs have a flat top. How can I get this to show the real data. I got the same result using RAW data.

Thanks

Dear Dean,

which result do you get running the query with our WMI Tester from the PRTG Host?

I am getting 80041008 error with your tool, but when I use WMI Explorer it also maxes out at 2000

Indeed, that seems to be an issue on the counter, not PRTG.
