Bundled Sensor Limits




Is there a way to set the default limit for the WMI Memory sensors to specific values? IE, the default warns at 30% remaining free. We only want to be alerted at 3% remaining free and have to edit for every server we add.

Can we set the default to 3%?

If so, can someone tell me how?

Hello Adrian,

Thank you for your message.

To modify the limit of many WMI Memory sensors at once, I invite you to use the multi-edit feature under Sensors > By Type > W.. > WMI Memory (/sensors.htm?filter_type=wmimemory) by selecting all sensors and opening the Settings menu.

Then, open the Channel Settings tab and modify the channel limits as you desire.

If you have questions, let us know.
