Is there a way to change the default ping size for all ping sensors instead of changing one by one?

Thank you for your message.

To change the priority of the Ping sensors, you can use the Multi-Edit feature in the Management tab. There, select all the sensors you want to change the priority (you can use CTRL+Alt to select many sensors), then in the Multi-Edit menu on the right, configure the Priority option before saving the modifications.

You can also use the Multi-Edit feature in the Sensors page (Sensors > By Type > Ping). To do so, simply select all the sensors to modify, then use the Settings button in the menu on the right.

Here is the manual regarding the Multi-Edit feature in PRTG: https://www.paessler.com/manuals/prtg/multi_edit_lists

Kind regards.
