How to split the 'Core/Probe Health' Sensor ?



My PRTG instance is running on version I have now noticed that the local probe still displays the 'Core/Probe Health' sensor. However, this sensor is deprecated. As is know, this sensor cannot be deleted. How do I get the three sensors 'Core State', 'Probe State' and 'System State' displayed as separate sensors? With an Auto Discovery on the Local Probe nothing changed.

Hi there,

You should be able to add these Sensor manually to the "Probe Device" of the local Probe.

Hello Moritz

So simple... I got confused by the fact that everywhere it says that this sensors are added automatically. So I have not tried to search for them.

Thank you very much.

Now I have the full overview, about the state of my Core Server and the Local Probe.

Best regards, Alain
