How to troubleshoot open requests on probe?

On one of our probes, the health sensor shows the following warning: 227 Items (Open Requests) is above the warning limit of 100 Items.

Interval delay WMI currently shows a 21% delay.

CPU, bandwidth and memory on the probe seem to be normal. How can we further troubleshoot this?

This sounds like the probe is having an issue handling the amount of WMI sensors that you have on the system. If you look in the probe logs you should be able to see what sensors specifically are timing out but most likely changing the scanning intervals on some of these sensors would solve the issue.

If you need to keep them on this interval, you could also consider deploying a remote probe These will help to load balance the WMI requests. This issue isn't really a resource problem in the traditional sense of RAM and CPU, it's more an issue with the WMI subsystem limitations on the server.

Another option with this in mind would be to change some of these sensors to only use Performance Counters in the windows compatibility options of the devices or group or to switch to another monitoring protocol like SNMP.

Thanks for the response, I'll definitely look into that. I'll let you know what the results are.

Is there a simple way in PRTG to show all WMI sensors? Or to tell if a sensor is WMI/SNMP?

All of my sensors were auto-discovered, and I am ok with switching them to SNMP. I am assuming this would be to manually delete the WMI sensors that were discovered and manually add SNMP sensors that track the same information?

This can be done by selecting the following from the menu:

SensorsBy TypeW...WMI ...

You should migrate on a per sensor-type basis to avoid missing any :)
