I ran across another cool post that a member of the thwack community put together that I wanted to share with everyone.  lasher put together some new resources for Orion NPM v9.5.1 which allow you to create double and triple gauges within a resource for Universal Device Pollers.  If you wanted to accomplish this today, you would need to use a custom html resource, so this makes life much quicker and easier.

 

 

 

 

So I can hear you saying, ok you had me at double and triple gauges, how do I get this?

 

First, you can download this resource Double Triple Poller Guage for v9.5.1

 

To install:

 
      
  • Copy CustomOIDEditGaugeDoubleTriple.aspx and CustomOIDEditGaugeDoubleTriple.aspx.cs to InetPub\SolarWinds\Orion\NetPerfMon\Resources folder.
  •    
  • Copy CustomPollerRadialGaugeDoubleTriple.ascx and CustomPollerRadialGaugeDoubleTriple.ascx.cs to InetPub\SolarWinds\Orion\NetPerfMon\Resources\NodeGauges folder.
  •    
  • Copy CustomOIDEditLinearGaugeDoubleTriple.aspx and CustomOIDEditLinearGaugeDoubleTriple.aspx.cs to InetPub\SolarWinds\Orion\NetPerfMon\Resources folder.
  •    
  • Copy CustomPollerLinearGaugeDoubleTriple.ascx and CustomPollerLinearGaugeDoubleTriple.ascx.cs to InetPub\SolarWinds\Orion\NetPerfMon\Resources\NodeGauges folder.
 

 

 

 

 

As lasher states, there are 4 known issues with it. 

 
      
  • Auto-Scale not working and has been disabled.
  •    
  • Auto-Hide Resource not working correctly and has been disabled.
  •    
  • Must set Warning & Error Threshold or Gauges will display red.
  •    
  • Gauge labels do not set correctly when first added to page.  (Workaround is to edit the gauge and click submit.  Labels will show up correctly after that.)
