Add multiple channels to the same CPU OID sensor



Hello Paessler,

I was checking in the sensor options and PRTG manual regarding how to add multiple channels to the same sensor, however, as I understand only certain sensors allow additional channels.

I use a compiled oidlib to query 5sec, 1min and 15min CPU usage. I would like to create a sensor and include channels that would show the average, minimum and maximum values in the same sensor, so they all appear in the sensor graph, so I can see average, minumum and maximum CPU utilization histoy.

It is something similar to the Cisco command "show processes cpu history"

I tried to make a personalized SNMP sensor with OID chains, thinking I can add different OIDs to the same sensor and then edit them one by one within the same sensor, choosing particular values for each channel, but maybe I am wrong... I was not able to achieve this yet.. Thanks a lot!!

SNMP Library sensors cannot be used to show more channels. You might create three sensors for the different load values and then summarize them using the Sensor Factory Sensor.
This would be the only way to achieve what you want to do.
Best regards
