wmi sensor disk space limit check override channel limit check




We have a Win 2012 server with 2 local HDD We usually check free space limit as follow warning-25% down -10% on one of the HDD have 6% free space and we are good with it so we changed the channel limit to warning-4% and down 2%

Unfortunately the sensor limit overrule the channel limit that we updated and we get a down notification. Is it a normal behavior and if so how to change a channel notifications limit from the sensor notification limit

Hi Ouri,

This is a bit hidden - navigate to the sensors settings and set the Percentage Limit Check to Only use the limits in the settings of the percentage channels. Then your manual limits will be taken into account :)

Kind regards,
