Traffic Senor Inverted



I have an SNMP traffic sensor which seems to be reporting the IN/OUT data in reverse of how it is flowing. Is there any way to reverse the sensor? I know I can create another custom sensor but that is just burning another sensor (which I don't have many of) to report the same data?

The sensor can only be inverted via the Sensor Factory sensor. You could also use a SNMP Custom Advanced sensor, but it lacks some advantages of the SNMP Traffic sensor, such as automatic renaming. The following OIDs are to be used:

32bit traffic traffic unicast unicast non unicast non unicast

64bit traffic traffic unicast unicast multicast multicast broadcast broadcast
