Hello,

There is a channel described as Various automatically created on my sensor and shows on the graphs. It can compromise of a great about of the traffic from time to time. Is there a way to tell what protocols it covers?

Thanks

various includes all traffic that does not apply to the already categorized traffic in the other channels.

Is there a big difference between that and the 'other' channel? I ended up setting up a custom sensor with a bunch of custom channels which I think will take care of the various traffic.

Thanks for the information.
