I'm hoping there may be an easy fix for this as I'm quite new to this and could well be missing something simple. I'm trying to generate an alert from a custom poller. The poller appears to work correctly and returns a value of 0 or 1 from the device I am monitoring (it is actually an alarm condition). It seems to function whether the format is 'none', 'text' or 'enumeration' for the purposes of displaying a graph for the node.
The attachment shows how I currently have the alert trigger configured with just two conditions:
poller name equal to IBUC10MHzalarm
numeric status equal to 1
The alert action I have is just to write to a text/log file.
I have also tried 'status' in place of numeric status and tried various changes to the format in the poller e.g. setting to text and using status instead of numeric status as I thought the issue may be with this, but no combination seems to yield a result. I see no alerts generated.
I am assuming the alert should be generated from any node the poller currently monitors.
I've had a look at some other posts and people appear to have results using similar alert conditions and pollers. Any suggestions are appreciated.
