How do I remove channels from a custom netflow sensor?



I added too many channels to my custom netflow sensor. When I trimmed down the channel definitions, the ones I removed still show up on the sensor overview page.

How do I remove the old custom channels without having to create a new sensor and changing the sensor/page id?

While it is technically not possible to delete a channel, or pause a single channel, it is possible to hide it. Please click on the gauge of the channel to open its configuration. Set "Hide from Graphs" and "Hide from Tables" and save this setting.

The channel still appears in the channel list on the sensor overview tab, but otherwise it is hidden.
