Issue/Introduction

We have created custom watches for citrix netscaler device for the below

nsCPUusage 1.3.6.1.4.1.5951.4.1.1.41.6.1.2

However, the instance values are not simple integer increments (1, 2, 3, etc), but made up of multiple, dot-separated numeric identifiers, such as:

12.80.97.99.107.101.116.32.67.80.85.32.48
12.80.97.99.107.101.116.32.67.80.85.32.49
12.80.97.99.107.101.116.32.67.80.85.32.50

 

Consequently, when a multi-instance (Instance = ALL) expression is used in the SpectroWATCH, the result is a single alarm even if all the instances breach the thresholds.

 

How can a watch be created that can raise an alarm for each separate instance?

Environment

Spectrum 10.4 or later

Resolution

Configure the watch to generate a custom event:

Then, when you configure the custom event, configure it so it generates a unique alarm for each event:
