Sensor "auto-down"



If I add for instance an WMI or SNMP CPU Load Sensor, does the Sensor goes in Down-State automatically at specific value or do I have to set an Limit always?

Setting Sensor Limits

Disk Space sensors are created with default limits enabled, most other sensors do not have default limits on creation. However, you can set upper and lower warning and error limits for every sensor type in the sensor's Channels tab.

You can create sensors with pre-configured limits using cloning or device templates, and you can also use multi-edit to set limits for multiple sensors at once.
