Hi Paessler, it turns out our dev team failed to add cpu limits to the clone devices we used to roll out thousands of sensors. Is there some way i can enable these en masse? Please say yes :)

Yes!

You can use Multi-Edit to make these changes to the Total CPU channel on each sensor.

If you go to Sensors -> By Type -> W -> Windows CPU Load, you should see a screen showing 10 Windows CPU Load sensors. There will be a button at the bottom allowing you to see all others. Click this button.

Now, click the checkbox in the upper right-hand corner to select all the sensors. Now some new icons appear, and one should be a small wrench. Click this, and you get into Multi-Edit. The tab you are brought to first is for the Sensor. There is another tab for the Channels. If you click the Channel Settings tab, you can now change channel settings for all channels the sensors have in common. That would be the Total CPU, and possible some of the cores, but not all. Repeat this process for any other sensor type you need to adjust, or if you need to do SNMP CPU sensors as well.

If you need to do more than 300, do them in chunks, as trying to do more than that can be tough for our database.
