Easy sensor audit?



Just need to know how many total WMI sensors we have. I'm new to this company and I just started reviewing our PRTG servers as we get WMI false alerts everyday. Everything seems to be configured correctly, up to the point of total recommended number of sensors.

A one-day report of all WMI sensor activity returned 43 pdf's worth of data that are anywhere from 4-6 sensors each, so right off the bat, that puts us over the recommended 200 limit, but im wondering if anyone knows a way to figure the exact number of sensors.
