Universal Device Pollers - confusing myself... probably.

So...

I know I can create UDP's for aspects not monitored out of the box. Further I know that I can assign that poller within the UDP tool to other similar nodes. I also know that I can't manage these pollers within the Solarwinds GUI but know I can see the output of them according to choices made when creating them (**).

However, what I don't know is how many of these UDP's can I assign to any one device?

I also don't know how to create an alert based on these UDPs or even if I can.

So am I confusing myself and not seeing the wood for the trees or ...?

(**) - if, for sake of argument, I elect to show the results only as a graph is there a way to go back and edit that afterwards as I can't see it?
