On the WMI Free Disk space sensor Maximum Value is the size of the disk. Is there a way to display that as an object on a map?

Hello,

You can try the following:

- in the "WMI Free Disk Space" sensor, choose the channel that you want to display in map (e.g. "Total") and click the pin symbol to make this channel the primary channel of the sensor,

- in the map add this sensor using the "Status Icon -> Primary Channel Gauge", so the icon will show the last and the maximum value.

Best regards

Hello,

The WMI class we are using for the WMI multi disk sensor does not return a value for the total disk size. If you want to monitor the total size, you can configure SNMP on the target device and use the SNMP Disk Free Sensor which will show the total size: http://www.paessler.com/manuals/prtg/snmp_disk_free_sensor

While this does work it breaks any other maps I have that need to show the amount of free space.

So in order to keep both maps working I have to add a second sensor and set it's primary channel to Total. This means there is now a duplicate sensor gathering the exact same data. This is not only a waste of the sensors that I've paid for but also a waste of resources. Multiply this by the number of servers I need to do this for and it gets quite frustrating.

Surely there must be a way to configure a map object to grab data from a different channel?

The map will only display the primary channel or all channels. You can display all of the channels for a sensor by selecting Status Icon - Channel Gauges in the properties of the map.
