    Configuring advanced alerts based on custom poller

    cskowronek

      Hello Everyone,


      I am new here and have a question for all of you.  I am running NPM v9 and I am trying to setup some alerts based off of some custom pollers. What I would like to do is get an alert when my UPS battery capacity is less then 50%.  I have a custom poller that provides present percentage of battery capacity but I am not able to figure out how to create the advanced alert.  Below is what I think it should look like.


      Trigger Alert when all of the following apply


         batterycapacity is <= 50%


       Any ideas?


      Thanks!


      Chuck

          Chuck, 

          You will have to create an advanced alert to trigger an alert based on a Universal Device Poller.

          • Start > All Programs > Solarwinds Orion > Advanced Alert Manager
          • Click on Configure Alerts
          • Click on new to configure a new alert.
          • Type a name for your new alert.
          • Select the Trigger Condition tab.
          • For the type of property to monitor select Custom Node Poller or Custom Interface Poller. this will filter the condition options you will be allowed to use.
          • Add two simple conditions by clicking on the three dots.


          First condition will be
          • Poller Name is equal to "Poller Name to select with the drop down button"

            Poller name can be selected under Custom Node Pollers > Poller Name

          Second condition will be
          • Poller Status is equal/greater/less/etc. than "Value"

            Poller Status can be selected under Custom Node Pollers > Status.


          Once Selected this you can setup any alert actions you need by configuring the Trigger Actions tab.

          Let us know if it works.
