    skipped  polling cycles


      Hi Guys

      I am currently running v10.1 and I have created a number of advanced alerts to notify us when NPM is not collecting all the stats it should - either because Orion is at fault or the device. 

      Recently I added the "skipped  polling cycles" parameter to the trigger and found that a number of Nodes had simply stopped collecting stats after the recent upgrade.  Issue was resolved by unmanaging the nodes for 5 minutes.  Because it had simply stopped collecting stats it did not change the Node status to down or unknown it simply held its last know status- soMay be worth checking your own installs for similar issues.

      Anyway, I want to include this parameter value in an email if the alert is triggered but I can't figure out what the variable name is.  Can anyone tell me what it is or how I find it.
