At present PRTG does not differentiate between interfaces on a device. Because of this we have the benefit of being able to monitor the same interface from different angles. But it also presents the issue that when you do an auto-discovery on a device, PRTG will add a sensor for the same interfaces it is already monitoring.

So unfortunately we do not have the ability to do what you're asking here.
