Add channel to SNMP



"You can enable an additional channel here. This is only possible during sensor creation."

Well, there needs to be a way to keep a full history of other channels while adding there a new channel. We cannot lose history of other channels just because there is a new snmp info available which needs to be added as a channel.

Hi there,

It's not possible to add channels to an existing SNMP Advanced Sensor and there are no changes planned in the near future. I agree that this would make the Sensor more flexible and maybe help more customers. If you think this may be a good feature for other customers as well, feel free to open a feature request, so other customers can vote for it.

Kind regards,
