SNMP Uptime Measure



I have been asked to set some warning and alarm levels onto a Router Uptime Sensor. The uptime is currently measuring for example 249d. I have been asked to Alarm if its less than 2 hours uptime, Warn if between 2hrs and 40 hours and Green if beyond 2 days.. How do I set hours into the Channel Setting for the warning level ? I am presuming as it is just showing me 249d uptime the measure is days rather than hours ?

Hi there,

Please note that the displayed unit is variable. If the time is very long, it's displayed in days. If the time is quite short, it's displayed in hours or days. I checked this and the limit configuration should be in seconds.
