sflow convert to v5 with Channel Selection



I have a number of sflow sensors without Channel Selection (ie; web, mail, chat, etc). I do not want to lose the data currently captured by the sensor but would like to have Channel Selection. Is there a way to convert the sensor or should I just make a new sensor and disable the old one?

thank you very much for your KB-Post. I'm very much afraid it is not possible to fill old (already) recorded sensor data into such a newly set Channel Definition. So it is indeed necessary to add a new sensor (and keep the old one paused).

best regards.
