Note: Solarwinds currently can only alert on the Celsius value of temperature when defining the temp value within the conditions of an alert.

Please be aware that if you set a value - it is in Celsius that the alert will trigger off of.

 

The display settings for temp is controlled under manage accounts -> hardware health package settings section.

Note that the alert conditions will still go on celsius as of the latest versions (Core products 2018.1).
