Hi,

I have SNMP service returning tempereature in Celsius. So exact response is "25 Centigrades". I need to monitor temperature but return value is STRING which I some need to be able to extract actual value of temperature for charting and alerting. How it can be done?

I'm afraid converting the string response into a numeric value is not currently possible using PRTG. However, in most cases, devices include a further counter that returns only the numeric value. Please check if this is not the case.

I'm running into the same problem and unfortunately the MIB of the device does not provide a separate OID represented as an integer. Is it planned to have string manipulation / conversion capabilities built into PRTG in a future version?

I've exactly the same. From a *nix device I get "0.37, 0.10, 0.03" as a reply to cpu load average OID. Is there any way to manipulate this string within PRTG and get them inside a graph?

We will look into this issue and maybe have a solution in one of the next versions.

I am having the same problem. Is it possible to do this using scripting at all.
