Global Sensor Thresholds

We have our PRTG installation set up more or less as we want it now with all the sensors etc, but we want to now fine tune the alerting etc.

One of the things we want to do is to set specific limits for lower and warning values for things like disk space, memory.

What is the fastest and most efficient way to:

A) Set these values on these sensors as the default for all future devices and B) Mass set these values on sensors already deployed?

Doing it manually is proving quite slow, surely there's a way I can display ALL "Disk Free" sensors, highlight the lot and set the limit thresholds?

The fastest and easiest way would be to use multi-edit to adjust the values for the sensors in batch. Essentially, use the "Sensors -> By Type" option to generate a list of all sensors of this particular type, then use the checkboxes on the right to select the sensors you wish to change. Then, click on the wrench icon (edit) and adjust the values as necessary. The changes will then be stored for all the selected sensors.

This doesn't address future devices though...

For future devices, you might want to use the device template feature :)
