Multi Disks Limits priority in sensors vs channels




What is the behavior for Multi disks sensors when setting limits at the sensor level and at the channel level?

The following comment above the limits seems to indicate that we should either set the limits at the sensor level OR at the channel level but that we can't mix the 2. "Please use the particular channel settings to set separate error/warning limits for each disk."

Some basic testing seems to confirm that if limits are set at the sensor level, the ones set on the channels are disregarded.

Thanks Thomas

Thank you very much for using PRTG. Please only use the Limits either on the Sensor Settings or the Channel Settings. Basically it's that which ever "come first" will become active and change the sensor state.

best regards.
