Auto-Discovery customization




I would like to know if it is possible to customize a device auto-discovery feature with device templates.

I'm using auto-discovery feature to monitor traffic on ports of a router. I would PRTG to only monitor interfaces which are labelled 'Physical Port' for example. For now, auto-discovery adds sensors to monitor all connected interfaces on the router.

I don't think this is possible with the version 7 of PRTG. Do you know if there is any customization possibility of auto-discovery feature in version 8?

Thanks, Jerome

Dear Jerome,

I'm afraid that hasn't changed in PRTG 8.

Best Regards.
