Device Tree Management

The Management tab is available when viewing probes or groups. After clicking this tab you can move devices and sensors right within the tree view. If moving is not possible the web interface will start a clone process automatically.

For more information, please see Manage Device Tree section.

General Settings

In the Settings tab you can define all settings of the current object. The available options vary, depending on the kind of object you're changing. Please see the following sections for information about the respective object types:

Note: The available setting options are different for each sensor, but always the same for probes, groups, and devices.

Notifications Settings

In the Notifications tab notification triggers can be set for every object. When using these settings for a probe, group, or device, they will be inherited to all sensors on these objects. Available notification trigger options are the same for all objects.

For more information, please see Sensor Notifications Settings section.

Channels Settings

The Channels tab is available for sensors only. In the channel settings you can define how the data from the sensor's different channels are to be displayed in graphs and tables. Additionally, the channel data can affect the sensor's status. Use the limit settings to achieve this.

For more information, please see Sensor Channels Settings section.


In the Comments tab you can enter free text for each object. This can be used for documentation purposes or to leave information for other users.


In the History tab all changes in the settings of an object are logged with a timestamp, the PRTG user which conducted the change, and a message. The history log keeps the last 100 entries.
