WMI HDD Health sensor.




PRTG has special sensor to monitor physical disk health "WMI HDD Health". When we add this sensor to device sensor has a lot of parameters with gauges. But no any threshholds on any of this parameters. Is it neccesery to create a treshholds? Or sensor will show Error at any changes in any case?

You'll need to create the corresponding thresholds yourself for the counters you deem important. The critical values vary from disk to disk, hence it doesn't come with predefined limits.
