Hello,

I'm using a value lookup to represent Disk Status of my storage. Values can be from 1 to 8 I'd like to know it's possible to add state to this gauge. Actually we have :

Ok Warning Error None.

I'd like to create new one such as "Spare", "Offline", etc... And if it's possible how to define color schema for those new state.

color lookups state

Hello,

you can create a custom lookup, as described here http://www.paessler.com/manuals/prtg/define_lookups.

Hello again,

sorry for the misunderstanding, i fear there is no other way to define more states as the usual 4. Paessler Team, am I right?

It's correct, only the 4 states are possible from lookups.

There are still "only" four types available:

  • SingleInt
  • Boolean
  • Bitfield
  • Range

It's not possible to define your own state definitions.

Active/Standby for cluster devices. We have a lot of them and we want to color diffirentiate that state at a maps. Now we use "Warning" at Stanby, but that not right.

We have some Cisco Cat6800 VSS clusters. And use SNMP sensors CISCO-VIRTUAL-SWITCH-MIB/cvs chassis/cvs chassis role (OID 1.3.6.1.4.1.9.9.388.1.2.2.1.2) with 3 states: standalone(1), active(2), standby(3). In our case (2) and (3) is OK status, but (1) is Error. We want use different colors for active and stanby custom objects at are map.
For example:

VSS

New states probably won't find their way into PRTG anytime soon, since the workload caused by new states is much more than adding new colors, unfortunately. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news here :(

A good and simple option should perhaps to add in the lookup defintion a tag to specify the color in HTML coding. So we keep the 4 states, but we can modulate colors inside the same state.

Hi Veg,

I see what you need. Talked to Luciano about it, but it's not possible to do this in PRTG as of now; sorry! :(
