Edit created device template for discovery



Hi, I have created a device template to discover only ping, disk, cpu and memory. Worked great and all my machines are only showing these sensors. But it it possible to change the threshold for eg disk free space sensor in a device template?

2nd. Can i expand the sensor with go critical when free space is <15% and <25gb

Thanks, be safe!

It might be possible to adjust device templates afterwards. However please note that we cannot be of assistance here. If you configure thresholds within your sensors before creating a device template, the thresholds will be saved in the device template as well automatically.

Second question: You can use "15%" and "25gb" as thresholds for different sensor states (Warning and Error). If you want to use both limits at once as "AND logic", this would only be possible by using a Factory Sensor as workaround.
