User story

As a PRTG user, I want to be able to have a more granular choice of which Channels to add to a Sensor.

Details of user story

In our setup, we use the snmpciscosystemhealth Sensor to retrieve environmental information of our cisco switches. When I add the Temperature "Channel" it will not only add the Value Channel, it will also add the "States". As each Switch will give about 30 Values + 30 States, in a Stack of 4 Switches we get a Sensor with too much "useless" Information. Clicking through each channel to hide from graph, hide from table takes forever.
