Why limit is on (enable limit) by default?



I added a device with the setting:

Sensor Management : Manual (no auto-discovery)

and added the sensors onto that device. But I've release that under some sensors Limits is on (Enable limits) by default and also contain threshold value.

For instance: In Memory sensor (WMI Memory sernsor), 'Limits' is 'Enable Limits' by default. and threshold value is already in the box. 'Lower Warning Limit (%) is already set to 30'.

Is this default setting on some sensors or only appearing in my device?

This is a default that is set up on certain sensors. If you want to get rid of the limits on these sensors, you can either multi-edit them and get rid of the limits or change them. You can also set up a sensor without limits and clone it to other devices or set up a device template without those limits and they will not be set on the devices that are Auto-Discovered with the template.
