Reload channels of Windows CPU Sensor



Hi I use an win CPU Sensor to monitor a VM. The VM had 2 CPU's and know, I reduced to 1.

Can I reload the current setting so prtg shows only the current 1 CPU? Can I hide the other channels? Currentliy, each CPU(1,2) shows a value greater than 6'000'000 % In live data, the total percent is correct. I need only the total percent and not each cpu.

Best regards Christoph

Hi there,

Channels cannot be deleted once they are created. You can either pause this sensor and create a new one to keep the historic data, or you can click on every particular channel to enter the channel settings. This will allow you to hide the channels either from the tables or the graphs, or from both.

Best regards, Felix
