Adding new Perfmon Sensors in bulk using PRTG-API or other methods



This is probably more for Lord Milko, however if there are alternative methods to implementing this I'm happy to use them instead. I'm looking to add around 170 perfmon counters per device and 10 devices in total, these would need to be split out into 5-10 sensors as well. It would be really useful to have a method to bulk upload these, however I'm not sure of how to do this without manually adding sensors per device

By default it's not possible to add PerfCounter Sensor in bulk. I'm afraid the only nativ solution would be to add these sensors manually.
