SNMP and raw values...

the SNMP monitor can only retrieve the value. it's all.
I want to monitor the bandwidth usage of a network card. the SNMP value returned is the total number of bytes and not a Kbps.
so to be able to create this Kbps value, I have to store the difference between 2 cycles as the result of the counter instead of the raw value of the counter.
something like:
(value 2 - value 1) / elapsed time between 2cycles.

today there is no option to accomplish this.
does the current version of the application support the storage of the previous cycle value?

maybe the executive windows services can provide an API to keep some data in cache if required by the monitors.
and each monitor can store a value in this cache as required.

thanks for your comments!

There is no way currently to base monitor counters on both current and previous readings.
My only suggestion for now would be to run the monitors as is and export counter data to Excel via the historical reports.
