Priorities in PRTG.




What for Priority is in PRTG? I know we can change Sensor sizes inside a device, but there is a dedicated object in Map Designer which call Sunburst (Sized by Sensors and Priority)? What more Priority can change? Is it influince somehow to Alerts or Notifications or it only change the visual (size)?

Thank you!

The priority setting only affects how the sensors are being displayed (order and size). Alerts, Notifications etc. can not be influenced by Priorities. For further information, kindly take a look at the Manual.
