How to disable table count for SQL sensor?



We have a sensor running a SELECT statement for a SQL Server database. We have noticed that PRTG actually executes a SELECT COUNT(*) statement to the database in addition to our SELECT statement. How to disable this automatic table count feature?

this second query can only be disabled if you do not use the option to return a Result Set to PRTG for this SQL Sensor. Otherwise PRTG will send out the second query to get the record count another result for this sensor.

Best Regards.
