senors usage



I am still running the trail version, but will be hoping my company invest in this product. If they limit me to 100 sensors and I use them all. I add a new device to my network and require to monitor it for a short period can I disable active sensors to allow me to have sensors avaliable to monitor my new device. If yes when I go back to my orginal device will all the data still be there from the previous logs

yes, this would be the way to go. You will have to just pause some of the active sensors and then un-pause the ones you want to monitor. When pausing a sensor all its data recorded before it was paused is still accessible but the sensor will not monitor anything when it is paused.
Best regards
