Can I easily add additional channels to my existing bandwidth sensors?



I have around 5000 bandwidth sensors in place, have realised that I would ideally like to have the 'Errors in/out' and 'Discards in/out' channels in addition to the standard traffic channel. Is there a way to achieve this in an automated way or would it require manually updating each sensor?

you could use Multi-Edit to bulk edit your sensors. The maximum what you can edit is 500 sensors a time.
Best regards
