Analyze Sensors with High Performance Impact, Filtered By Scanning Interval



I'm trying to analyze all my high performance impact sensors and decrease the frequency I scan them where possible. It would be great if there was a way to add the scanning interval column to the sensors.htm (?filter_size=4 or 5 for example) page so I could find any sensors we're scanning frequently.

Hi Paul,

I got you covered :)

For all sensors with a high performance impact use the following URL:
/sensors.htm?columns=size=htmllong,probegroupdevice=text,sensor=htmllong,status,message,lastvalue,minigraph,priority,favorite,interval,checkbox&filter_size=4 For all sensors with a very high performance impact use this URL:
/sensors.htm?columns=size=htmllong,probegroupdevice=text,sensor=htmllong,status,message,lastvalue,minigraph,priority,favorite,interval,checkbox&filter_size=5 You can sort the view by Interval and use Multi-Edit to change the scanning interval of multiple sensors at once.
