Feature Request: SNMP Traffic Sensor already exist indication

User Story

As a PRTG User, I want to add the SNMP traffic sensor to additional ports on a network switch with many ports, where already some of them are added in PRTG.

Details of User Story

Right now I only see if a port is connected or not, but I also want to see if a port is already added in PRTG. I always need to open a second browser tab and cross-check, which takes additional time and is inconvenient. Deleting all existing sensors and adding all ports again is not a good option, as we will lose historical data.

Acceptance criteria

  • Add another column in the "add sensor GUI" indicating that a sensor is already placed on the device
