How can I dynamically create channels based on a query?



So I can use the SQL v2 sensor to run a query and get results. But how can I take those results and display them.

For example, query would give 4 columns of date like so:

CustomerDB,DBSize,UserCount,Sizeperuser Cust1db,300,6,50 Cust2db,150,2,75 etc...

I want to run the query in PRTG and have each unique CustomerDB value as a channel with the other columns as values for that channel.

The idea being that I can then set warnings when any of the numerical values is above a threshold.

Help me PRTG Kenobi's, you're my only hope.
