SMS txt alerts



hi, due to a slight error of judgment, I cause our PRTG to send out a gazzillion SMS alerts, is ther ea easy way to stop this and clear the queues, I paused sensors, and eventually edited the SMS username to stop it, but "if it happens agian" how can I clear the queues, stop it sending out thousands of txt alerts ?

thanks !

Thank you for the reply. It depends a bit on how far things are already gone. Pausing the notifications (not the sensor may help), or if they are already all queued up, then only stopping the PRTG Core Service will clear the queues.

best regards.
