Supplemental OIDs optionUse this option to add supplemental OIDs that define numeric sensors for monitored SNMP devices.
Once a supplemental OID has been added, the Data Center Expert server will request it for every SNMP device, with the supplemental OID value reported only by SNMP devices that can report the sensor associated with that OID. This allows the server to monitor and provide alert notifications for the supplemental OID the same way it does for any other sensor for SNMP devices.
You use the Other Numeric Sensors threshold option to configure alert threshold settings for an SNMP device that has the type of numeric sensor associated with the supplemental OID.
To add a supplemental OID, you need access to the Management Information Base (MIB) that defines the OIDs available to the SNMP device.
|OIDs||Identifies the existing supplemental OIDs.
Sensor Type: The type of numeric sensor (temperature, humidity, air flow, etc.) that best matches the data reported by the OID.
Unit of Measure (only available when Generic is the Sensor Type): The appropriate unit or measurement (degrees, seconds, volts, etc.) used when reporting the sensor data.
OID: The definition of the OID to be monitored for an SNMP device (for example, .188.8.131.52.4.1.3184.108.40.206.2.2.2).
Description: A description of the OID (for example, UPS Temperature).
