Dear Traig

Thank you for using PRTG. Which sensor type are you using for this query?

SNMP custom.. But i solved this issue my problem now when i set the value type Gauge (signed integer, e.g. "-12", "120") .. i get this message "''CPU Load (100ms, 1s, 10s) : 1%, 0%, 0%'' is not a valid integer value".. But when i set the value type Gauge (float, e.g. "-5.80", "8.23") the sensor working fine but the sensor reading is ( 1001100000 %) , So how i can solve this problem the reading should be integer like (10% , 2% or 1% and like this ). Please your advice.

Kind Regards
