I'd really like to configure sensors by type, such as setting sensor scanning intervals. Some sensors, I'd like to check every 10 seconds, such as ping, some sensors I'd like to check every minute, such as CPU, network interface bandwidth, and IIS page load times, some sensors I'd like to only check every 24 hours, such as disk space, Windows Update status, SSL certificate status, and uptime.
Currently, the inheritance option is device based, not sensor type based. It would really cut down on the number of WMI calls that my probes would need to run, and would reduce the resource utilization of monitoring in my production environment.
Thank you for your time and consideration. I've completed my free trial, I'm down to the 100 free sensors, and I'd really like to purchase this product, but this is one of the annoyances that is holding me back.
I would, as a potential customer, really like to see a UserVoice site used for PRTG. I've read the blog posts from the CEO about keeping the product road map secret, fair enough, but as a potential buyer, it's information that I want to see as part of the purchasing decision. I'd also like to see the connection from feature request to completion, so I'm reassured that the company is receptive to their customers' feature requests.
