<%NUMBERING1%>.<%NUMBERING2%>.<%NUMBERING3%> PRTG Manual: Object Settings

Pages of probes, groups, device, and sensors have a tab-like interface. Using the tabs you can navigate through various sub-pages of an object in order to show your network's status, view monitoring results, or change settings.

Tabs Bar on Sensor Pages

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. Sensor Channels Settings are not reachable via tab but directly on a sensor's overview page via channel gauges and the channels table.

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.


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.

Note: On some pages, you can access the history of subordinate objects via the according context button in the page header bar. This includes System Administration and the overview pages of User Accounts, User Groups, Reports, Libraries, and Maps. See section Logs (Main Menu) for details.
