Threshold Trigger




I have an Advanced Custom Sensor (Powershell) with approx. 150 Channels. I want to have a notification if the threshold of any channel has been reached.

Is there a way to automatically create the notification triggers or do I have to do that 150 times manually?

Thanks in advance!

Hi Kraissj,

Thanks for the post, we do not recommend having sensors with over 50 channels, if you start seeing performance issues, try to limit these to 50.

You can use this:


And use these:

<LimitMaxError> <LimitMaxWarning> <LimitMinWarning> <LimitMinError>

This will change what puts the sensor DOWN or Warning.

However you'd need to rely on libraries to change all of their Notification triggers:
