Request for Cisco Uptime Sensor



Hello - I'd like request that a Sensor be created specifically for the Cisco Uptime to read beyond the 32 bit value:

A support engineer on the knowledge page suggested a perfect solution by scanning a SNMP OID for the snmpEngineTime which returns seconds up vs. Timeticks. THANK YOU: Luciano Link ---> https://kb.paessler.com/en/topic/72315-snmp-custom-advanced-uptime This works perfectly and I'd like to see a more permanent option

Thank you

User Story

I'd like request that a Sensor be created specifically for the Cisco Uptime to read beyond the 32 bit value.

Details of User Story

We currently are creating SNMP custom Advanced sensor for each device and pulling the OID: This was suggested by a Paessler (See Above) and it's working perfectly. I'd like to see a more permanent version in future releases.

Option but a plus: Set alerts thresholds based on over or under certain time frames. We currently try to avoid having equipment run for years without a reboot and it would be nice to produce a report/alarm on this equipment.

Acceptance criteria

  • Criterion #1 - Uptime reports beyond the 497 days limited by the 32 bit Integer value returned.
  • Optional - alerts based on thresholds (Under or over cretain time frames).
