    Alerting when value changes since previous poll


      I have a WIndows PowerShell template that counts a value on my database, and then outputs that value.


      I want to know:


      How can I change the states of the monitoring to critical, if the value increases since the last poll.



      Poll 1 - Value = 100

      Poll 2 - Value = 100

      Poll 3 - Value = 101


      I want it to go critical on Poll 3.





        • Re: Alerting when value changes since previous poll

          Enable Count statistic as difference for that component. This takes the difference between the current poll against the previous poll  So a non-alerting state would be when the statistic is 0. The critical threshold would be defined as greater than 0. Typically this is used to calculate the rate of change in a stat, but should work just as well for you here.
