Can PRTG determine the min, max values of more than two channels?



The Sensor Factory sensor offers a min and a max function for two channels, but how can I aggregate more than two sources?

You can recurse these functions, meaning that you replace one of the parameters with a new min or max function call.


We created a channel that determines the maximal value of seven source channels using the following definition: #1:slowest answerer max(Channel(4288,2),max(Channel(4293,2),max(Channel(4290,2),max(Channel(4291,2),max(Channel(4294,2),max(Channel(4289,2),Channel(4292,2)))))))


You can't use the avg() function in this way, of course.
