I'm monitoring some ports on my switches , now we moved that appliance from port 21 to 12. If i create a new sensor for port 12 , I'll loose all history from port 21. Can I move it without loosing my history ?

Thanks

at the moment it is not possible to move the historic data from one sensor to another, sorry.

I remember seeing before in the old KB a way to do this in version 6. It had something with creating the new sensor, getting the ID number of the old sensor and adding that into a config file or the advance options on the sensor. Is this still possible.
