Display value snmp custom sensor delta counter NOT in #/sec




I want to use the snmp delta counter for monitoring an oid.

At the url:


Channel Unit Configuration is mentioned after Access Rights. Is use for testing the free version 13. But I don't see this option.

I don't want my values devided by 60, because I don't monitor bandwith. How can I configure this right?

Sorry it is not possible to disable the /s function for delta counters until now. Please note, if a delta counter is selected PRTG will calculate the difference between the last and the current value depending on the time.

I wrote my own script using the xml/json option in the device to calculate the difference and present it to the http advanced sensor. So this is solved for me now, but it would be great to have this option in the future.

Thanks your vote is counted, but this is not the main purpose of this kind of counter. Sorry for that.

Is there any snmp-counter with delta option for NON speed use? Maybe I missed that in the huge counter list.
