Consider the following remarks and requirements for this sensor:




  • This sensor supports IPv6.

Performance impact

  • This sensor has a very low performance impact.


  • This sensor uses lookups to determine the status values of one or more channels.

Basic Sensor Settings

Primary Channel

Select a channel from the list to define it as the primary channel. In the device tree, PRTG displays the last value of the primary channel below the sensor's name. The available options depend on what channels are available for this sensor.

i_round_blueYou can set a different primary channel later by clicking b_channel_primary below a channel gauge on the sensor's Overview tab.

Graph Type

Define how this sensor shows different channels:

  • Show channels independently (default): Show a graph for each channel.
  • Stack channels on top of each other: Stack channels on top of each other to create a multi-channel graph. This generates a graph that visualizes the different components of your total traffic.
    i_round_redYou cannot use this option in combination with manual Vertical Axis Scaling (available in the channel settings).

Stack Unit

This setting is only visible if you select Stack channels on top of each other above.

Select a unit from the list. PRTG stacks all channels with this unit on top of each other. By default, you cannot exclude single channels from stacking if they use the selected unit. However, there is an advanced procedure to do so.

Inherited Settings

By default, all of these settings are inherited from objects that are higher in the hierarchy. We recommend that you change them centrally in the root group settings if necessary. To change a setting for this object only, click b_inherited_enabled under the corresponding setting name to disable the inheritance and to display its options.

i_square_cyanFor more information, see section Inheritance of Settings.

Channel List

i_round_blueWhich channels the sensor actually shows might depend on the target device, the available components, and the sensor setup.




In the channel table on the Overview tab, this channel never shows any values. PRTG uses this channel in graphs and reports to show the amount of time in which the sensor was in the Down status

Oper State

The oper status

  • Up status: Config, Diagnostics, Disabled, Discovery, Ok, Pending Reassociation, Pending Reboot, Test, Unconfig
  • Warning status: Bios Restore, CMOS Reset, Decomissioning, Degraded, Maintenance, Power Problem, Restart, Thermal Problem, Voltage Problem
  • Down status: Compute Failed, Compute Mismatch, Config Failure, Diagnostics Failed, Discovery Failed, Inaccessible, Indeterminate, Inoperable, Maintenance Failed, Power Off, Removed, Test Failed, Unassociated, Unconfig Failed


The operability status

  • Up status: Auto Upgrade, Operable
  • Warning status: Degraded, Unknown
