Hi there,

You can add Sensor automatically via the Auto Discovery feature of PRTG: https://www.paessler.com/manuals/prtg/auto_discovery

In addition, you can enable the automatic port name update in the SNMP compatibility options so that the SNMP Traffic Sensor updates its name: https://kb.paessler.com/en/topic/25893-automatically-update-port-name-and-number-for-snmp-traffic-sensors-when-the-device-changes-them
