Sensor Templates




Does anyone know if it possible to create sensor templates?

For example, I have a WMI Volume sensor with 3 notifications, and channel alterations.

It is pretty time consuming to keep adding these for every server HDD. It would be nice to just choose "Custom WMI Volume with Notification" sensor or similar.

I have tried the "WMI Free Disk Space (Multi Disk)" Sensor, but I don't like it.

Plus this feature would be great for other sensors!

It is possible to create a library with a specific sensor type. Then you can set notification-triggers on this library. Remember that many libraries will cause performance problems.

I hope this will be helpful.
