Hello Filippo,

Thank you for your KB-post.

Kindly note that it is not possible to delete those sensors types. They are installed by default on every Probe Device. Furthermore, they are very important for troubleshooting in case of e.g. high CPU load, memory issues, sensor interval delays or similar issues that might occur on the probe or on the core server.

Best regards
