Multiple Channel Option Change




I monitor outgoing and incoming traffic at all my sensors. Now, I will add error and summary bandwidth monitoring to all sensors (approx. 300).

I know I can change that on one sensor, but its a hard work to do it on every sensor. Is there a solution to change that option on all sensors from one device or group?

kind regards

Dear Christoph,

for SNMP Traffic Sensors you could do that with the Multi-Edit. Simply select the sensors by type "SNMP Traffic", then increase the item count in the following list, select all sensors, and edit them by clicking on the little 'Wrench'-icon.

Best Regards.

Hello Torsten,

I know that solution: In that menu, I can change enable/disable errors, or different types of packets. but I mean the channel settings. Where i can enable the summary traffic. I don´t find a solution to make these changes for more sensors.

One more question: Where I can change the look of the diagramms. I prefer the butterfly view ( incoming traffic positiv, outgoing traffic negative )

Thank you very much! kind regards
