How to monitor a sensor with 3 values



Hi, I'm trying to monitor a system Health SNMP value.

The returned values are 1 ok, 2 warn and 3 error.

How can I create such a sensor in PRTG to get this working ?

Actually I've created a simple snmp Sensor with gauge value and set 1.9 to warn and 2.9 for error.

I'm not really happy with it. Do you have another solution to show the result ?

Thx for your feedback gurus :)

You can use |value lookups to translate return values into sensor states.
