sFlow custom flow OSR file - loading after editing




I have written a customflowrules.osr file for my sFlow sensors as I found the one provided by PRTG a bit too basic. However, I can't see a way to load this file without restarting the PRTG core service. Am I missing something?

Hello Ian,

You are correct here. This FlowRules.osr file requires a restart of the core server service, as it's loaded on startup only.

Kind regards,
Felix Saure, Tech Support Team
