We are monitoring our Infoblox Appliance and using a Sensor created by using the Infoblox mib.
Sensor is "Ib Ha Status". This sensor returns a message with Passive or Active. But it does not create a channel, so that we can not monitor changes over a time span as you can do with channels. The sensor does have the channels response time and down time.
So my question is: How can I use the message to create a channel, so that i can use the sensor in a map to see when which Infoblox member was active or passive?
I do not have any experience with regex and I have absolutely no clue how to use it. PCRE looks like program code while Regex is a confusing set of characters.... PCRE does have the function "pcre2_substring_length_byname" or "pcre2convert", can this be used to convert the returned message to a numbered value which can used for a channel?
Active = 6 characters Passive = 7 characters
bit length of string should be different to..
Reading the the sensor options and PRTG manual i guess it should be possible using "Extended Processing" and "Extract Number Using Regular Expressions" and "PRTG supports Perl Compatible Regular Expression (PCRE) regex".
I do not know to explain it easier, so please excuse my bad english explanation.
Thanks and Regards
