Bulk editing all Processors in CPU Load Sensor




We currently have an environment of around 7000 sensors. (which is why bulk edit would be nice)

Our primary problem right now is that none of our CPU Load sensors, have been set with any warning/alert limits.

Is there any way to do bulk editing of all the processors in the sensor at at time? and perhaps even the entire environment?

Dear ftr

You can edit the same channel for multiple sensors at the same time via multi-edit. However, you cannot edit multiple channels of the same sensor at the same time.

Go have a look at https://thedomainiown.wordpress.com/prtg-related/prtg-relatedprtg-admin-module-function-list/

There is a function called Set-PRTGChannelSettings

Params: DeviceID, ChannelID, Property, Value

Lets you set properties of a channel, these include thresholds/limits.

You can use this to enumerate through all objects of a certain type and change all channel thresholds.

Infact this exact scenario is one of the main reasons I wrote the PRTG Powershell module. (Who wants to manually change 7000 sensors with 20 channels each?).

Of course this is a little bit of work to setup (registering the modules etc), and of course not supported (by ANYONE)

I am in the same situation now, need to change a number Channels. Has any feature for b ulk editing been added since this post?

Otherwise it would be very nice to have it...

multi edit supports to edit many channels of one sensor in bulk, or one channel for many sensors.

Further bulk editing options are currently not planned.
