Alarm on uptime less than



I would like to be able to alarm if a machines uptime is less than, say, 5 or 10 minutes. We are not running snmp on these servers but we do track uptime with the WMI sensors. Is there a way I can generate an alarm if the uptime changes to less than 10 minutes?

The best way to do this would be to set up channel limits. You can set up the lower error limits and then if the value is below a certain time, it will alert. The channel limits will be in units of seconds so make sure you put in the correct amount of seconds.
