    System Uptime


      I would like to know if there is a way to monitor a system's uptime. I want to set an alarm to notify me when a system has been up for longer than 3 days.

      Would appreciate if anyone could help.

          You can use Universal Device Poller and OID sysUpTime.0

            Hello Raggabox,

            The Universal Device Poller is in Orion.  The equivalent in ipMonitor would be the Custom SNMP Monitor.  Simply go to Devices -> All Managed Devices, select the Device in question and click Add -> Add New Monitor.  On the right-hand side, click "SNMP", on the left-hand side, click "Custom SNMP (Wizard)".  The sysUptime OID should already be entered.  Ensure the correct address and community name is entered and click 'Next'.  Follow through the rest of the wizard and that should be it.

            Hope this helps.
