Incorrect percentage in SNMP traffic sensor




After I edited the SNMP traffic sensor channel (whether it is a traffic sum or IN/OUT) the sensor circle displays some weird very long percentage number, instead of displaying 84%

Can you tell me, why the visualization works like this sometimes?


PS: I also would like to know, please, if there is a possibility to delete old interface statistics, like everything older than 1 month, so it is not displayed in the channel statistics (the one which displays Now, Mininum and Max values that have been received so far) I believe that this Max value that was received before I changed channel settings from kbit/s to percentage somehow is being reflected in my reports and influences the total statistics

Thank you.

Hello Patrick,

I was using 13.6.something.. I just updated to the latest 13.7 and seems like the problem disappeared. Thanks a lot!
