Multiple scanning intervals



Is there an easy way to set up the scanning interval at the sensor type? For example, I would like to check CPU utilization every 60 seconds and check disk usage every 30 minutes. Rather than going through every device and setting the intervals for each sensor, I'd rather change it at a top level sensor type and have it apply to all devices.

The easiest way is: Choose on the top Sensors -> by Type -> choose your Sensor type (for example Windows CPU Load) All your Windows CPU Load Sensors will be shown now. Click select all and then click on settings (at the top on the right) Now you can change some settings for all of these Sensors like the interval.
