WMI Vital System Data Sensor




PRTG has WMI Vital System Data (V2) Sensor, inside it we can monitor several Physical Disk parameters for example:

Physical Disk: Disk Reads/sec Physical Disk: Disk Writes/sec

What units are used here? b/sec, kb/sec? Or just requests for read/sec?

Hi Vasily,

This channel just shows the amount of read/write accesses per second. This is not measured in bytes.

Kind regards,
