Hello, I have created a factory sensor that accumulate several bandwidth sensors, how can i change the display of the bandwidth shown in the graph from Kbit/s to mbit/s ? I tried to change it on the sensor's parent device but it didn't change it.

Thanks, Yaron

You would have to change the units on the bandwidth sensors that make up that sensor factory sensor. You can do this at the original device(s) settings page.

Hello, I have changed the units on the device which the original bandwidth sensors belongs to. The sensory factor is still showing Kbit/s unit, Do I need to do something more than that? Thanks, Yaron

Please add a [<unit>] entry at the end of the formula, for example

percent(channel(2001,0),100,kilobit)

Please make sure all counters being used by the factory sensor are set to be the same.

Hello, The Channel Definition of the factory sensor:

  1. 0001:Lan Channel (36379,0)

When I do follow the example you gave, I get the following error message:

  1. 0001:Lan Channel ((36379,0) , 1000 , mbit)

Ajax Error (Bad Request)

When im doing

  1. 0001:Lan[mbit] Channel (36379,0)

it shows the mbit in the graphs and in the live data but the values are still in kbit. example: 1,797,347,530 mbit

Thanks, Yaron

Thank you, I will do that. I want to add that once I created a new factory sensor after changing the parent unit settings, the relevant unit were expressed, but the meaning of that is I will need to re-create all the sensors and the maps again.

Thanks, Yaron
