How can we merge two sensors into one ?



I searched over the Help and finally over the FAQ but I'm not able to find a answer to this basic functionality :

I would like to merge two SNMP Bandwidth sensors coming from the same phyisical device into one.

This will provide me a combined view of both data which is very useful for me.

Thanks for any help

'merging' in the true sense of the word is not possible, but you can use the Sensor Factory to display the results of several source sensors in one graph (or calculate them).

best regards.

Thank you for this answer, could provide me some help to do that with the sensor factory ?

I had a look but seems not really friendly the first time :-)

This sample will add the vales from the Sensors with the IDs 1000 and 1001 from their 0-Channels. You can discern a sensors ID, by viewing its Overview-tab, the ID is then written directly behind the sensors name. The Channel-Number can then be discerned on the sensors Channels-tab.

Thank you the missing part for me was the sensor ID
