I am trying to graph the APC Battery runtime using NPM. It is the last thing to graph. I have the Universal Device Poller setup and working. It is showing the pooling values of 02:01:00 ever 10 mins. I know the oid is a timetick. However when I put a Univeral Device Poller Chart on the view it graphs it at 350K +. I would like it to be in mins or hours at the most.
P.S. It seems like it would be nice to make a univeral device poller then do do some math on that before it saves the value. i.e. convert C to F for temps. So if you know if that is possiable please let me know.
I was able to set this up and get a minutes value. However, the only way that I can display it is with a gauge. Does anybody have a way to display this value as a simple number? I don't want or need a confusing graphic for this value.
I called Solarwinds, and it turns out that I was reaching this limitation by using the "Universal Device Puller" from the desktop, and not through the admin web interface. Once I was instructed on how to do it on the web interface I was able to get what I needed. thanks for the suggestions.
Did you manage to get a simple Number Value? I have the poller working, but would like a gauge that simply displays the runtime as text, not a guage or dial.
If you edit the web display properties of the UnDP transform for the battery runtime, you can select to display a chart view on a view (node details in this example.) That should get you the runtime in minutes displayed as text in a chart.
Hope this helps!
