    Tabular UDP and Advanced Alert message formatting

    rmorton

      I have been playing with tabular universal device pollers to show multiple PSU status in Nortel 8600 switches. I have created an advanced alert which triggers when the status is 'down' and works as expected, however I am struggling with the formatting of the alert message. The nature of the poller means that I get three values returned when really I just want to know which of the PSU has an issue.

       

      There are two variables:

      ${CustomPollerStatus.RowID} - 1, 2, 3

      ${CustomPollerStatus.Status} - up, down, empty

       

      As there doesn't look to be any way to do this I thought I would use a table in the alert message instead.

      I would be happy(ish) if I could produce something like the below (in html) but I need to split the variables in to three -  is it possible to transform the alert variable? Please let me know if I'm missing something obvious!

      _______________________________

      Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

       

      Thanks
