Does PRTG automatically choose what specific sensors suits your network?



After setup, when we choose automatic discovery, the system already choose what sensors it will activate per machines. Is this automatic each setup?

Thank you for using PRTG. Yes, this is indeed done automatically. You can configure the Auto-Discovery (which is the process behind the automatic detection of devices & sensors) as well though.

best regards.
