Can you change the graph range in a sensor/report?



I have a Sensor Factory displaying results from 2 3Com Switch Gigabit Interfaces (monitoring Link aggregation).

They have a 2 Gigabit bandwidth together. In the sensor page/reports I want the graph to be scaled up to the 2 Gigabit bandwidth, so I can see the actual usage easily.

For example, if the link has only utlisied 250 Megabit of the bandwidth, I want the graph's axis to scale up to 2 Gigabit, so I can easily see the available bandwidth left.

In the sensor's Channel settings, select the respective channel and in the Vertical Axis Scaling section, enable the Manual Scaling option. You can then set the scale's min. and max. values and Save your settings. Repeat this procedure for other channels, if needed. You can also use Multi-Edit for this purpose.
