How many sensor could be run at one time?



Hello, I have 140 hosts and on each one, I have the same (cloned) mssql sensor. All sensors are set to run scan at UTC 19:30. But scan start only at first 100 sensors. Is there any limitaion, how many sensors could be run at the one time? Thanks a lot for help. Radek

Hello Radek,

There's no hard coded limit. PRTG will try to scan all sensors in the defined scanning interval/time. If they aren't running in the configured time, it seems like your probe system is overloaded. In this case you can try to distribute your sensors to multiple probes or change the scanning interval.
