Some questions regarding maps creation.

Hello,

I'm planing to create a map for my LAN but I need to be sure for something.

1. Based on this example photo http://i.imgur.com/1aywpqH.png, is there any way to display a single sensor without its graph? I mean, in the same way like icons with multiple sensors.

2. Is there a way, to list the respective names/descriptions of sensors when you pass (hover) the mouse over the sensors? In few words, if I've multiple sensors for an icon, e.g 4 sensors, I'm able to see only 3x UP, or 1x Paused etc., but no more further info!

3. Usually to create a new map, we need to select at minimum one sensor from the Tree. Than, we can drag-drop it inside the map area. An icon (static or not) appears in the map.

But, is there a way to put into the map only the sensor(s) without icons?

In this way, I can put my network scenario (image) as a background of map, than I can move sensors optionally in map. In my memory, maybe I'm wrong, older versions of PRTG, had this option!

Thanks

1) You can use "Name and Status" that you find in the group "Status Icons"

2) Not that I have seen. But you can click on i.e. 4x UP and get a list of that sensors.

3) See the map objects under the groups "Status Icons" and "Graphs". You can then go to "Settings" tab, set Background Image to on an choose an image of your network design as a background image.
