High and Low Value Range

#1 Post by aftershocks » Wed Mar 01, 2017 12:35 pm

Hi All,

I would just like to confirm how the high and low values work... Does it specify a "range"? So far example - I'm trying to trigger anything that is within the range of 90 - 100..

I set my High Threshold as 90 and my Low Threshold as 100 and if my current value reads 92, would this be expected to trigger?

If my current value reads 75 (which is not within the range) it should not trigger, correct? Do I have this logic right? Or am I misunderstanding the setting?

Please help to confirm...

Thanks.

Nope. Its not a range. 75 is less that your low, so it would alert. Its something I can think about adding in though.

Ohhh I see!

Thank you so much.. I would be very interested if you ever do come out with a release.. The reason is because we get hit with a TON of false alerts...

The reason being is that the for some reason, whenever there is a break in the graph (gap), Threshold reads the value as some crazy high number and it throws it off - hence, kicking off false positive alerts...

Check out the screen shot.... That is why if I can specify a range, if and only then does it fall within the range, an alert would kick off making it more accurate to respond to... NOC is getting hammered with alert spams...

Hi cigamit,

Were you able to have some spare time to come up with this feature?

Thanks.
