Hello Alessandro.
Thank you for contacting us.
The SNMP Custom String sensor monitors a string returned by a specific object identifier (OID) via the Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP). Let me share with you our KB article about how to set up this sensor correctly.
In order to properly troubleshoot this issue, I would kindly suggest you create a ticket at [email protected], so that We can have a better look at how you have your sensor configured.

Kind regards
