Limit search results



I have to delete 5000 Sensors, they are all labeled with some kind of variation of "USERPORT".

If I search for USERPORT i get all 4800-and-something Sensors and its just too much for PRTG. I can select them all, but when I click on Delete, nothing happens. I already tried it over the Webinterface and with the Windows Client.

Can I somehow limit the Search Results to only show 1000 per page? Or less? So I can delete the sensors in <20 Steps.

Dear ccolic

The search shows all results on one page. Please use the menu "Sensors" instead, using "Sensors / By Tag / ..." to get to the sensors in question. This view is paged with a maximum of 50 sensors per page.
