How to turn off alerts for SNMP Printer sensor

Down

I've created a map of all the copiers in our organization and added vital sensors such as ping and SNMP Printer. Currently the SNMP printer is almost always listed as "down" because something such as Cyan is low or a paper tray is empty. Although these warnings are important, it makes my map almost all red all the time, essentially rendering it useless. Is there a way to have SNMP alerts display differently or give a different warning so that way i can easily look at my map and distinguish between PING being down and SNMP sensor being down?

Well, you could configure the limits of these sensors accordingly, so that they only raise a warning instead of being down. You can do so in the channel settings of the corresponding sensor(s). Although there's no way to project that on all SNMP based sensors, you'll need to modify them via Multi-Edit.
