How can I disable alerting for a particular channel of a sensor?



I want to ignore some of the alerts being generated from certain disk volumes and get notified about others on a particular sensor. Can I disable or ignore individual channels of a sensor?

if you are working with Error- and Warning Limits on those Disk Sensors, we would suggest not to use the Limits on the 'Settings'-tab of the sensor, but to use the Error- and Warning-Limits in the Channels-Tab of the sensor to do this: PRTG Manual - Sensor and Channel Settings. And then only supply error-limits on those channels were you want to have alarms.

Best Regards.
