Okay, let's do it step by step :)

  1. Click on the device so that you're seeing all of its sensors
  2. Click on the settings tab
  3. Scroll down until you see the section Channel Unit Configuration
  4. Untick the checkbox beneath it where it says Inherit From ...
  5. Configure the units in the first section (where it says Bytes (Bandwidth))
  6. Save

The units within the sensor should then be updated. If not, please recreate the sensor.
Let me know if further assistance is needed :)

This can be done in the device/group settings, in the channel unit settings area. All objects beneath the changed one inherit that setting by default. Note that you may have to recreate the sensors in order for this to be updated to the new units.

Hi Stephan,

Thanks for the reply.

I do not see any direct option to change Kbps to Mbps in Edit Channel setting for the device.

If there is specific method to do so , can you please forward the same ( preferably with example) ?

Thanks again !!

It has to be changed in the device settings itself, not the sensor settings :)

Stephan - I think I am not able put the questions correctly :(

How do I make the changes in device setting ? I am new to PRTG to make such changes , if there is an article on how to make this changes you can give the reference of the same.

When I click on Edit channel it doesn't show any editable field.

In Data Section it shows two options 1) Display actual values in kbits/s 2) Display in percent of Maximum , so where should I make the change and how ?

Thanks.
