How to update XML sensor limit ?



Hi, I've written a powershell script to read info on my Dell Equallogic. It request data with SNMP and output a XML as result.

My problem is that the sensor limit are never updated in PRTG. The value is read the first time and that's all.

Example : I have one lun with 1Tb, I've fixed limit warning to 15% and error limit to 5% so XML result will be :


If I change the size of the lun, the value is changed and limit are recalculted but only the value is updated in PRTG.

So my question is : it a normal behavior ? is it a bug ? Do I have to change something to enable those updates ?

Thx for help.

That's intended behavior, yes. The limits are only read once during the sensor creation.
