My PRTG installation has around 100 EXE/Script sensors that each have a scanning interval of one hour. All of them have the same mutex. The runtime of each sensor is about six seconds, so there should not be any problem with the one-hour scanning interval.
However, I recently had the issue that all sensors are scanned at the same time. This results in the error message:
The request has timed out because the sensor is waiting for mutual exclusion (mutex). For more information, see https://kb.paessler.com/en/topic/57133. (code: PE035)
How can I get PRTG to distribute scanning a bit more over time to avoid these timeouts?
