Group of sensor



I am using PRTG Network Monitor 9 and on some computer I monitor I have many sensors. I want to know if it's possible to make group of sensor for a computer. For example on a computer I monitor the hardware( processor, disk) and I monitor the Windows Log Event. I want to make two groups.

Thank you - Liece

I'm afraid it's not possible to 'group' sensors on a device.

best regards.

I there,

It seems unacceptable that in version5 we have the ability to do group sensors, and in version 9 we don't. I'm moving from v5 to v9, and i'm having so much difficulty to re-arrange the hierarchy...plus i cannot import the info from v5 to v9 directly, i have to do it by hand...and i'm moving to a better/newer version!

Are you planning to put that feature in a later upgrade?

Thank You,

Grouping sensors can simply be done with devices.
