Library filter 1000 object limit



Dear Sir, Madam,

Are there any plans on increasing the 1000 object limit when filtering sensors on tags?

Right now I've created Libraries, which are filled by filtering sensors based on tags.
Those Libraries I use for alerts / notifications.

However, as my environment grows, I'm more and more often running into the 1000 object limit when filtering by tags.

Right now I worked around this by filtering on 'sensorA' '+sensorB' and a separate object filtering on 'sensorA' '-sensorB', but that only works 'till one of these combination hits the 1000 object limit...

Hello there,
thank you for your KB-Post.

We're aware of the limitation, however there are no short term plans to change this.

We're working on performance improvements for PRTG's future, if they indeed lead to the improvements that we're hoping for it could mean that we could increase/change this limits, but this only speculation, nothing concrete at the moment.

Best Regards,
Luciano Lingnau [Paessler Support]
