Units of channels.




We connected several devices (APC power distribution unit) to PRTG and connected several SNMP Lib. sensors to it. Inside this sensors we have different channels which has default "#" as Unit. We change "#" (in Channel Edit) to any parameter what we actually need for understanding but after next sensor request it back to "#". How we can change this Unit to what we actually need?

Thnak you!

Hi Vasiliy,

Please check if there is any unit configuration in the Sensor settings, too. Maybe you also need to change it there.

Please let us know if you could get the issue.

Kind regards,
