Number of CPU's on WMI sensor



Without deleting the sensor, is there a way to change the number of cores the cpu monitor sees. Our MSP changed the number of cores to 24 when we wanted it changed to 16. PRTG being as awesome as it is, saw the 24. Now the extra 8 procs are 0's and changing the percentages. Is there a way to only monitor 16 cores?

Hi there,

Since you can't delete channels once they are created, it is not possible. You need to recreate the sensor.

Kind regards
