Printer consumable status in different languages



I'm monitoring our printers with the SNMP Printer BETA Sensor. For some printers, where I had to use the "Use single get" setting, the sensor lists the consumables in english and german.

After adding the sensor, the channels have german descriptions. After some time, channels with english descriptions are added. Correct values are only shown for either the german or the english channels.

Dear Mr. Dehnert

Thank you for using PRTG. The sensor channel names are determined with the OID

If the printer changes the supply names, PRTG creates new channels with the new names.
