Are you referring to the SNMP Traffic Sensor? I'm afraid this sensor only shows traffic for a specific port. If you are looking to monitor all interfaces you would need to use one of those sensors for each interface. There's no sensor that monitors the total traffic at once, I'm afraid.

This article may be of interest for you as well: Do I need one sensor for each port of every switch?
