Set Limit Markers in Graphs
PRTG’s graphs will automatically display limits you set in the sensor channel settings. You can set upper/lower error and/or warning limits. Limits will automatically set a sensor into Warning and/or Down status. Each limit will automatically be shown as a yellow or red area in a sensor graph if you configure the graph to show one sensor channel only.
|Sensor Channel Limit||Color of Area in Graph|
|Upper Error Limit||red|
|Upper Warning Limit||yellow|
|Lower Warning Limit||yellow|
|Lower Error Limit||red|
For example, a traffic graph with limits can look like the following:

In order to create a graph display like this, please ensure the following:
- In the sensor channel settings, in the Display section, set the option Hide from graphs for all sensor channels except for one—the one you want to have a graph with limits for.
- For the remaining sensor channel, in the Limits section, Enable Limits and set error and/or warning limits. Save your settings.
- Return to the sensor’s Overview tab to check the graph display. In order to get a filled graph, set the remaining sensor channel as Primary channel for this sensor. All other sensor channels will be displayed as a line only.
For "visual markers" only (A limit which doesn't affect the sensor's status) you may employ a Sensor Factory Sensor.
