How can I change notification for multiple sensors?



We have added CISCO-ENVMON-MIB.my SNMP-Library from Cisco to monitor the system health of our cisco switches.

Cisco retun codes for Enviroment monitoring are:

        STATUS  current
        DESCRIPTION                "Represents the state of a device being monitored.
                 Valid values are:

                 normal(1):         the environment is good, such as low

                 warning(2):        the environment is bad, such as temperature
                                    above normal operation range but not too

                 critical(3):       the environment is very bad, such as
                                    temperature much higher than normal
                                    operation limit.

                 shutdown(4):       the environment is the worst, the system
                                    should be shutdown immediately.

                 notPresent(5):     the environmental monitor is not present,
                                    such as temperature sensors do not exist.

                 notFunctioning(6): the environmental monitor does not 
                                    function properly, such as a temperature
                                    sensor generates a abnormal data like
                                    1000 C.

How do I change the notifications (threshold triggers) for multiple sensors at one time? Editing each of 31 sensors for one device will take a lot of time

you could try configuring the Threshold Trigger on device level, but this will basically only allow you to access the Primary Channel of the sensors. If this does not help, I'm afraid then it would be necessary to configure the triggers on sensor level for each sensor.

Best Regards.
