Working with SNMP MIBs for some switches. I want to read the temperature for those switches. I've imported their MIBs and setup a custom SNMP library sensor. All this works fine. Except, the sensor only has the channels 'Downtime' and 'Response Time'. The temperature value is reported as a 'Message', whatever that means?
The problem with this is, I cannot setup alarms based on the message. That way I can never send alerts when the temperature gets too high. How do I work with this data?
