APC UPS threshold notify setting



I have APC UPS to monitor with PRTG. It has PowerNet-MIB ups adv battery sensor. I 'd like to send notification when its battery below 50 % or 30 minute remaining. How can I set that threshold notification? I saw " When PowerNet-MIB ups adv battery sensor" Channel is below " XXX " for at least 60 minute.

I don't know what xxx mean. its is minute or second or hour? Then I can set it correctly.

Thank you for your message.

The value defined in the threshold trigger will be compared to the one from the channel defined. Here is the manual of the threshold trigger: https://www.paessler.com/manuals/prtg/sensor_notifications_settings#threshold

For example, let's take a channel called Battery left, which return the percentage of remaining battery. Then, the value configured for the trigger will check if that percentage is below 50% and trigger the corresponding notification template:

When Battery left (%) is below 50 for at least 30 seconds, perform notification

If you have questions, let us know.
