As a PRTG User, I want possibility to evaluate incoming sensor data freely and create channel out of it no matter what format it is.
Details of User Story
I have snmp sensor which retrieves temperature sensor data from display. Snmp reply includes information ASN_OCTET_STR as data type for value but for reason unknown returned data is in hexadecimal format which makes it impossible for prtg to convert data to proper sensor channel.
