"Incoming or Outgoing error" notification



I'm monitoring more than 300 networks switches with 24/48 Ports. I'd like to add "incoming / outgoing errors" and trigger a notification everytime there is an error on a interface, is this possible?

I added the "incoming /outgoing errors" on one switch to laborate, but it seems to me like you cannot get a notification on a secondary channel? So i changed "incoming/outgoing errors" to be primary channel and it looks fine. Is there any easier way of fixing this or do i really have to change the channel on every single interface and also set the notification on every interface?

Is there another way to configure this?

I would suggest the following solution, enter Error/Warning-Limits for the "Errors In/Out"-Channel in the "Channel Settings" of this sensor and then work with a normal state trigger on this.

best regards.
