APC Battery runtime remaining

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.

yeah we'd also like to see the graph display time values instead of xxxK values.

Since "a time tick is a hundredth of a second", you simply have to create a poller transformation that divides this poller by 6000 for minutes or 360000 for hours.

 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.

Many thanks!

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!
