Question about channel limits

Hi,

I am new to PRTG and am trying to get rolling with it. I am using the Linux SSH Disk sensor which puts all the file systems under one sensor. The global limits are at lower than 25% for warning and 10% for error. I have one file system at 17%, so in the channel setting, I change its lower limits to 15 and 10 so it will go to OK, but it stays at WARN. Why isn't the channel setting overriding the global? Thanks.

At this time, the channel settings for this sensor do not override the global settings that are set in the settings of the sensor itself. You would need to disable the sensor limits in the sensor settings and then set the channel limits for each one of the channels for them to be different on each drive.

Will you be changing that behavior?

We recently had a discussion about this and the decision was made to keep the limits parallel. You can post your vote in the KB article here to possibly get this changed.
