I am trying to monitor status of an HP p2000 using the technique listed here http://www.remilner.co.uk/?p=276
This works, but many of the values returned from the p2000 command line do not display as numbers, they display as text statuses, for example they return the value "OK"
In turn, my XML looks like this
<prtg> <result> <channel>Power Supply 1</channel> <value>OK</value> </result> </prtg>
In the prtg monitor this shows up as just as the number Zero in the table of channels for my custom Sensor.
Is it possible for the <value></value> field to to have a non numeric value?
I have searched the faq on line and I cannot find any examples of using non numbers in this field.
