sensor factory sensor graph



Hi I have a sensor factory sensor with two ports on my switch. On map designer I have added a live graph of this sensor; for some reason the labels on the graph look different than the one that is for single port sensor i.e. on this factory sensor graph the: yellow line says Traffic Total blue line says Traffic Out thick green line says Traffic in

whereas for the other sensors with the single port: yellow line says Traffic Out blue line says Traffic In thick green line says Traffic Total

Here is the screenshot (http://oi59.tinypic.com/30m5pg6.jpg), top graphs is for the single port sensor and bottom one is the three ports sensor factory sensor

Following is the Channel Definition for this sensor factory sensor:
#1:Traffic in
Channel(2494,0) +  Channel(2497,0)

#2:Traffic Out
Channel(2494,1) +  Channel(2497,1)

#3:Traffic Total
Channel(2494,-1) +  Channel(2497,-1)

I would like to keep the same labels/lines like in single port sensor for all the factory sensor graphs.

Any help would be much appreciated, thank you.

Dear bickyz

Please rearrage your factory channel definition to reflect the channel order of the SNMP traffic sensor: Traffic Total, Traffic In, Traffic Out:

#1:Traffic Total
Channel(2494,-1) +  Channel(2497,-1)

#2:Traffic In
Channel(2494,0) +  Channel(2497,0)

#3:Traffic Out
Channel(2494,1) +  Channel(2497,1)
