There are no additional license limitations regarding the number of SNMP trap receiver sensors you can create; each trap receiver is counted as one sensor. Please create one of these sensors for each trap receiver.

Certainly, you will experience performance limitations when using a huge number of trap receivers. These depend on your installation size, hardware, and network. Therefore, we cannot give you exact numbers. So, please keep an eye on your PRTG installation's Probe Health Sensor(s).
