SNMP sensor - Change channel Setting



Hello everyone,

i'm new in this forum and i have a question about the channels settings of the SNMP sensor.

I have a lot of objects with SNMP sensor but i need to change the channel settings one by one with the Data type from " Display actual values in kbit/s " to " Display in percent of maximum " .

I know that we could make a multiple change but when i put the " Display in percent of maximum " i need to change the "Maximum kbit/s" . And each of my site have a different speed.

So my question is : Can we change "Maximum kbit/s" data with data from a excel file for exemple ?

Thank you.

PS : Sorry if my english is bad, i'm french ^^ .

With the help of the rich API of PRTG, pretty much "everything" is possible by some own custom coding.

Take a look at http(s):fqdn-of-your-prtg-site/api.htm to learn more about the API and it's possibilities.

So what you want to do is make a script/application that parses data from Excel into a command like:
