SNMP Library Sensor Alarm Value



I have imported a MIB and I am using the SNMP Library Sensor to get a value on a specific OID.

I would like to alarm if the value is 2 only.

Value 1 and 5 are OK. I tried limits but I have not been successful. The alarm works with Upper error set to 1 when it changes to 2. I thought maybe if I also put the Lower error limit to 5 it might ignore 5.

Hope that made sense?

Have you tried the snmp string sensor and set it on failure by a value of "5"?
