Is there a way to check if Limits has been setup up on ALL sensors?




As the subject says, I would like an easy way to see if I have set up limits on all my sensors.

We recently had a server that stopped working because it ran out of disk space. Yes, the sensor was working, but no limits has been set up so the sensor never failed.

I'd rather not go through all the sensors one by one, so I wonder of there is a way to extract or get an overview of the Limits set for all sensors? By group or by type would be fine enough, as long as I dont have to go through all my 1300+ sensors, one by one :)

Hi Bjorn,

Unfortunately that's not possible. What you can do however, would be going through the sensors using Multi-Edit and enforce limits to sensors of the same type to avoid going through them one by one.

As mentioned before, make sure, that you only select sensors of the same type (e.g. settings of wmidiskspace-sensors differ from snmpdiskfree-sensors) in order to edit parameters they have in common.

When multi-editing WMI Diskspace Sensors, you'll find their limits in tab "Settings". Limits on SNMP Disk Free Sensors need to be set in tab "Channels" for the desired channel (Free Space %/Free Space Bytes/...)

If the fields for entering limits or the desired channels do not show up when trying to multi-edit them, at least one sensor is selected that doesn't match the others' type.

Kind regards, Erhard
