Multiple equations inside the single data point?

Hey does any one know the constraints for multiplication etc inside the data point?
We have a value that is say 2.2 and we have to multiply 2.22 to 1/10th the value, something like ...
So the retrieved value of 22 needs to become 26.4
Is anything more than just a simple multiplication available here without having to use an additional virtual/meta data source?

I'm not sure I understand your example. You can certainly enter something like 1.2 as the multiplicand, to change 22 to 26.4. I assume this is the SNMP data source?
The answer is likely no, there is not a general purpose tool other than Meta Points or connecting a Point Link or Script to a virtual point for arbitrary transformations of a value. Meta points are incredibly flexible, and if you're running on Java 8 their overhead is very small (still pretty small on Java 7, only somewhat problematic on stressed single core machines), especially if they're doing simple multiplication / math.
