Dear support,

We have a device that we query using SNMP, we use a MIB and the SNMP Library type sensor.

We are able to get the value, MIB is working. But what we get is :

'26% - Database capacity usage is OK' is not a valid integer value

But the value is followed with another status which is - Database capacity usage is OK

Of course PRTG is not happy with that and cannot graph this value properly.

Can we tell to PRTG to only consider the first 2-3 value in string to display a graph? Because 26% is the value I would like to graph.

Thanks

Sorry, parsing string values to numeric ones is not possible with PRTG.

Often, devices provide those values additionally as integer (at a different OID). Please check if your device acts this way and use an integer counter instead.
