Wondering if anyone has had experience with setting up a custom alert for APC UPS using a Universal Device Poller (specifically upsBasicOutputStatus).
The upsBasicOutputStatus currently has a status of "onLine". What I would like to do is be alerted when this changes. All forum posts seem to answer the question with the old Advanced Alert Manager.
When I try to add a status "not equal to" - there only seems to be pre-set responses that don't include "onLine"
Anyone know the proper way to set this up? Thanks!
You also get that when you havent set the alert to alert on 'custom poller'
in my case I want all the nodes to be APC's and the custom poller to be UPSAdvBatteryCapacity'
I have rate or numeric value set to 95 which works.
I'm wanting exactly this.. I'm trying to get an UPS percentage alerts so once it hits 60% we'll be notified but the alert won't trigger. I set the values to 100 and changed the polling time to see if that would help but still can't get it to fire. Any idea?
If you select "Other" from that column, does it give you a separate field to enter something else, or does it just look for "Other"?
If you want to use SQL to define the trigger, you can try this, and tweak as necessary.
SELECT n.Caption, cps.Status FROM Nodes AS n
JOIN CustomPollerAssignment AS cpa ON n.NodeID = cpa.NodeID
JOIN CustomPollers AS cp ON cpa.CustomPollerID = cp.CustomPollerID
JOIN CustomPollerStatus AS cps ON cpa.CustomPollerAssignmentID = cps.CustomPollerAssignmentID
WHERE cp.UniqueName = 'upsBasicOutputStatus'
AND cps.Status NOT LIKE '%onLine%'
No "changes" unfortunately... just all the usual comparative values.
Seems like in older versions you can manually type what you want the status field to be.... In 11.5 you are restricted to the pre-set values.
