How do I set a limit for a pass/fail test?



I have an Emerson Network Power-Liebert GXT2 rackmount UPS with an SNMP monitoring card. I want to monitor the results of the "Igp pwr battery test result". The result is either "passed" or "failed". Limits that can be set are number only. Is there a way I can set an alarm condition if the test says "failed"?

battery failed gxt liebert passed
