Make primary channel on multiple sensors



I want to set Traffic Out to be the primary sensor on some of my backbone sensors. The reason is to make a map so each end of the link shows something other then total traffic.

I have selected all the sensors, and can edit the channel settings, but I can't find a way to make them the primary sensor.

thank you very much for your KB-Post. I'm sorry, Primary Channels can only be set on single sensors.

best regards.

I prefer hiding total traffic. Simply edit the channel and uncheck display in charts and tables.

Then if you want, you can also increase the star rating of other channels, but I don't generally do this.
