Suggestion - Dynamic Primary Channel



Hello, Could I make a suggestion please?

What I'd like to see is an option for a dynamic primary channel on a sensor. Let me explain, I am using a Custom Advanced SNMP sensor to monitor toner levels in our copiers and I'd be great if I could chose the lowest, or highest, returned value as the primary channel. This would allow me to see, at a glance, the status our entire copier estate and have replacements prepared rather than waiting for alerts to be triggered.

I am sure there would be other use cases for such an option.

Thanks Campbell

Hi there,

Unfortunately, that is not possible and there are currently no plans to implement such a function. The reason is that the request rate for such a feature is rather low which is why we won't invest our development time into such a function.

Best regards.
