Hello,

I´m setting up monitoring to an IBM BladeCenter H by SNMP, I want to monitor temperature and fan speed.

The value for the temperature ie. is: "14 .50 Centigrade" (string) but I need a numerical value to set an alarm (ie. if higher than...)

How do I do that? How do I extract just the numerical value to compare it and make a rule?

THANKS!!!

Hi

In the Configure Objects Threshold dialog (where you set the alert threshold), there is a ... button out to the side of the object name. Click that and you can force the type to be an integer for comparison's sake.

Sorry, I took way to long on viewing your kind answer :)

In "configure object thresholds" window, there is a button with 3 dots on it at right side of "object"; there I can choose "object type" and I do see 11 different options for the value, ie. among them "unsigned integer".

I tryed several options but it still doesnt work, it doesnt seem to be doing anything...

PS: am on version 5.2.2.112

Thanks!
