Is there a way to find sensors that have a high frequency?



We have nearly 10,000 sensors running on our environment and would like to check that none of them have been set to monitor at a high frequency. Is there a simple way to check for this?

Hello Giles,

Thank you for your message.

To check the interval you are using, you can go to Setup > PRTG Status and then search for the section "Sensors Sorted By Interval".

Then, to have a list of the sensors using a certain interval, you can use the following address You must be logged in beforehand):


In the example above, the interval is set to 60 seconds. Please change it accordingly. If you have further questions, let us know.

Kind regards.
