Is it possible to set Limits directly in oidlib file?



Is it possible to define upper/lower Error/Warning Levels directly in the oidlib file, so that i don't have to adjust each single Channel thresholds. Lookups are not required for those sensors because we want to keep the "speedometer" and receive too many values for Lookups (Singleint and Range).

Thank you for your message.

Regarding oidlib files, I'm afraid that you can only define limits there, as mentioned in the manual available on the MIB Importer page.

Therefore, to apply limits to new devices for example, I invite you to create a device template of an existing device with its sensors already configured. So, when you add new devices they will also have the same limits as the main device from which you have created the template.

Thank you Florian. This is the way we are doing it currently. First create a device and adjust limits manually, then clone it for all additional devices to get the limits already configured. Was hoping to get it somehow directly in the oidlib, but no problem at all.

Best Regards
