Custom Composite Sensors

I'm trying to create some composite (multiple channels in one "sensor") sensors, based on custom SNMP oid's. For example: Switch cpu load 1s/1m/5m, which isn't in the standard sensors. Now i could first add 3 custom oid sensors, and than add them together trough the sensor factory, but this requires ALOT of work when doing it for 10 switches...

What's the best way to do this?

Hello,

you could do this for one switch, and then simply clone the switch. Or use the device templates to discover the other switches of the same type.

best regards.

I tried just cloning the set of sensors, but the "sensor factory" sensor still uses the old id's in the template... Would this be different while using device templates and clone them?

No, I'm afraid the Channel Definition does not automatically "update" itself. Sorry.

Isn´t there an other way to achieve this? I see PRTG's own sensors do multiple aggregrate sensors, what's the difference between them... And most important, how can I make them myself?

Custom WMI Sensors can only have one result in the moment. This can't be changed. Only the "Custom Exe Advanced"-Sensor can use several results.
