Monitoring processes in Linux

I've setup a custom snmplibrarysensor to monitor ntpd on my linux host. When I added the sensor it responds with a #1 when up and #0 when down.

I'd like to configure the sensor to be: A. green - up when it's #1 B. red - down when it's #0

and I guess I do that via the channel settings? but I can't figure this one out. I'm using version 14.3.10.2422. Thanks

channel linux snmp-library

Hi Josh,
you can either do this with channel limits or you might have a look into lookups. With both is is possible to make the sensor change state based on the condition.
Best regards

Go to channel edit settings > Limits > Enable limits > Lower error limit set to 1 (you can set also the error limit message if you want)
