Display Dell Status Sensors values in reports



I'm working on a daily status report, but the built-in Dell PowerEdge hardware sensors only show a percentage value in reports, rather than the actual status. I'm having trouble finding a way to force them to show an actual status value on the reports. Is there no way to do this?

I'm running the latest version of PRTG, and the report type is set to "list of sensors (with 1h graph)", as there are other performance sensors on this report.

Thanks, Dan K.

Dear Dan,

thank you very much for your KB-Post. The percentage in Reports is meant to show, how much of the time the desired value (defined in the Lookup used by the sensor) was reached. The only way to disable this, would be disabling the Lookup on the sensor(s).

best regards.
