add groups to switch stacks



I have a stack of Cisco switches that has 144 total ports. they all show as being from one switch, when they are actually 6 switches chained together.

Is it possible to divide the switch port sensors into groups to make it easier to find a specific port?

grouping sensors switch-port

What types of sensors are you using? In the event of NetFlow sensors you could filter the specific ports (see What filter rules can be used for custom Packet Sniffing or flow (NetFlow/sFlow) sensors?).
