For item #1: When you create the UnDP for each oid, there's an option to keep historical data for the poller. If you choose no, you'll always see the latest result. I think the best way to show individual items like a serial number or model number is to add the Universal Device Poller Status resource to your node view. It will show all of the UnDP's assigned to that particular node.
For item #2, there might be an easier way, but this is one way to do it: create a new view by going to Admin > Views > Add New View. Create it as a Summary view and click submit. Go down to add resources, and under Miscellaneous choose 'Custom Object Resource'.
Go back to a preview of your view (use the preview button at the bottom of the customize view screen) and click edit on the object.
For object type choose Nodes, then under select object resource choose 'Universal Device Poller Gauge' or whatever type you want.
Then customize as you will and click submit. You can then duplicate this resource as many times as you want, and change it for all your UPS'.
Once you have your new view, you can assign it to one of your menu bars by going to Admin > Customize Menu bars.
Hope that helps,
I have added the Universal Device poller for our UPS's and it seems to work fine but I wish to setup some graph views when I click on a UPS and when I click on one of my new pollers I get the image I added saying that a universal device poller has not been selected. Anyone know what I am doing wrong?
this looks like a known issue which will be fixed in upcoming Service Release. To verify that you can try to change the uri of the page from screenshot a little bit. Locate parameter 'CustomPollerID=' and change it to 'rpCustomPollerID='.
Anyway to view the graph data just place the right resource to the page (Customize Page -> Add Resource -> Node Charts -> Universal Device Poller).
Hope this helps,
Thanks I was just running into this issue as well. Was able to add the UnDP graph to the summary page though. Is there anyway to add multiple graphs to a view for a UnDP?
Neil, care to share your TrippLite UnDPs on Content Exchange?
