SSH ADVANCED SENSOR 50 Channels limit



We have created SSH ADVANCED SENSOR. For this sensor we have more than 50 Channels. However as far as we know the limit is at 50.. For example for few AIX machines we have to check the disk space and there are 70 disks which are added to the system. So how can we monitor all with SSH ADVANCED SENSOR. The problem is we cannot use SNMP and it has to be SSH only.

Dear skba_mach

You can try to use 70 channels, but there is no guarantee that the sensor's execution time is within reasonable bounds.

The second option is to split the channels to two sensors, for example with 35 channels each.
