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

General Settings

In the Settings tab you can define all settings for 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:

icon-i-roundThe 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.

On the Comments tab you can enter free text for each object. You can use this function for documentation purposes or to leave information for other users.

Click Save to save your settings. If you change tabs or use the main menu, all changes to the settings will be lost!


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