Custom Filtering of Value IDs of SNMP Custom Sensor




I am using an SNMP Custom sensor to find the state of the Power Supply in one of our Dell servers. The sensor is reporting data back, however I'd like to ensure that proper alerting gets sent out if the status changes. The values are all over the place, per:


For instance, our current state is 242, but if it changes to, for instance, 1, 4, 8, 10, 210, I would like to change state to warning or down, but some of the other values between that range I may not want to change state.

Is there a way to set this so that it only encompasses specific values based on this lookup table?

Thank you!

Lookups, to the rescue! ;) They're what you're looking for. Let me know if you need assistance with the syntax.

Kind regards,

Thank you very much Stephan! That's exactly what I needed in this instance, just hadn't worked with Lookups to consider them. Got it looking the way I needed it to, much appreciated!
