How do I set Root CPU Load Threshold



Some time ago I changed the CPU Load Thresholds Upper warning to 25% and Upper Error to 50%. These settings were changed once and all sensors (existing and new) inherited this new setting.

I do not remember were in the interface I made this change.

I would now like to modify these values again to 55% and 60%.

I have spent many hours looking through the interface but can't find the root setting for these thresholds.

Please can you advise were to look?

This was probably set using multi edit :)

Thanks for replying.

I don't remember using multi edit, and this would have only set the values for existing sensors.

In this case all new sensors are also getting the 25% ,50% values.

Is there a template for the sensor that could be edited?

Is it possible that you've used a device template to create them by any chance? On the root group perhaps?
