SNMP Printer, Removal of unnecessary channels



I would like to monitor the toner level of printers. For this I added the devices via the IP address. I have created the sensor SNMP printer. It now shows me all possible channels of the printer. For example, whether the printer is open or closed. How can I remove the channels I don't need?

Hey, There is not currently a way to remove channels from sensors. Is there a particular reason you need the channels removed rather than just ignoring them? If you just want to ignore them you can hide them from the graph and table. This can be achieved within the channel settings. ----- Kind regards Josiah Horton - Team Technical Support
