Sensors as a sub group branch within a device



Your Vote:



Hi Paessler Support

Is is possible to group sensors together as a sub group within a device?

I have a TP-Link PoE switch, have imported oid/mibs and can now monitor both bandwidth usage and PoE usage per port.

All the monitored sensors appear with the device, but it would be useful to be able to create a sub group for Bandwidth and a second sub group for PoE. Grouping would make the presentation on screen clearer.

As a workaround I have created a clone of the device and instance 1 is the Bandwidth and instance 2 is the PoE

Hello Geoff,
thank you for your KB-Post.

This is currently not possible, you can't "group sensors" in the current interface. What you did (creating two devices) is indeed the best alternative for now.

Best Regards,
