Once you click on a device you'll be able to see all the sensors for the device. There you'll be able to see the status as well of all the sensors whether they're in error status or okay status or warning status.
This gives you a good overview of how the health is of the actual device in PRTG. When you're at the sensor overview page you can see the various statistics for the sensor as well as the graphs at the bottom. You can click on the graph on the bottom to actually make this also full screen.
Some other features on the sensor page are the ability to favor a sensor or to change the priority of it. If your favorite a sensor in this dialog box then when you click on the installation on the selling side you'll be able to see that right away.
