Naming of OIDLib created sensors / what am I missing?



Your Vote:




I've used the MIB importer a couple of times now and have set some "pretty" names Identification > Group+Name fields as well as Value > Indicator.

However, when creating sensors in PRTG, the sensor names are pretty much useless, it just ends up being "enterprises / {1-3}" for instance. I'm sure you know what I mean.

Am I missing something, how can one get better naming there out of the box?
