Hi Stuart,

Does it actually return an integer value like "0" for false and "1" for true? If so, then you can define a custom lookup which will display "true" for "1" and "false" for "0".

Hi Stuart,

For this purpose please use the "SNMP Custom String Lookup" sensor.

Hi Stuart,

How did you configured the "SNMP Custom String Lookup" sensor? Please forward us a screenshot (upload it on a free-image-host) of the sensor settings.

Best regards.
