I am trying to setup some custom gauges in my SolarWinds dashboards and need to access custom node/interface properties in my poller's formula. I have checked the NPM Admin Guide, to no avail. THWACK does have an article from April, 2009 (see below), but when I try this and TEST in "Transform Results Wizard" I get an error "Object reference not set to instance of an object".
Is it possible to access custom node/interface properties when evaulating poller formula?
Thanks in advance,

Ok so this one is a bit tricky but it can be done... The first thing you need to do is create a new Universal Device Poller that will return a numeric value. I chose ifNumber (126.96.36.199.188.8.131.52). Assign that to your node but dont store history or add any web display. Next create a new transform and for your formula enter
Assign that to your node and add it to the node/interface details view as a guage and it should show you your custom property value in a guage.
