Hi Daniel,

You can create a Sensor Factory Sensor to apply your own calculations, like for instance to sum up all individual traffic channels.

The channel definition can look like this:

#1: total bandwidth
((Channel(2033,1) + (Channel(2043,1))

Replace the first number (2033) with a sensor ID of one of your custom sensors and the second one (1) with the respective channel IDs. You can find the ID in the sensor overview page of the sensor.

Best regards, Felix
