Odd factory sensor result



I have a range of servers with a sensor that calls a perl script. The result is then shown in PRTG, and that part works (it's a script for showing status of Postfix queues).

I've then created a factory sensor that sums up all these sensor results. For some reason the sensor shows old values, ie. if I've forced a refresh of the underlying sensors, the factory sensor is not reflecting the new values (not even after that is refreshed).

Hi there,

Please make sure that all sensors involved and the sensor factory sensor have the same scanning interval. Could you check that?

Best regards.
