Sensor Factory Sensor - NIC Team



Do I need to keep the individual sensors, once I create a sensor factory sensor?

I created a sensory factory sensor, to give me total output of two NICs, part of a team on a Windows 2008R2 server. I do not have SNMP enabled, so am getting this information from WMI. The individual NICs keep reporting as unusual, and I want to know if I can disable them somehow. I don't think I can remove them, since they are part of the factory sensor, but I don't want PRTG to alert me regarding their unusual status.

Thank you

thank you very much for your KB-Post. It is necessary to keep the source sensors for a Sensor Factory. Otherwise the Factory Sensor won't have sources to pull values from.

best regards.
