This Orion Platform topic applies to the highlighted products:

Hardware states displayed in the Orion Web Console change based on thresholds set for the sensors. You can either use thresholds available on the device, set a sensor to always appear to be up, or customize thresholds.

When values polled on a node reach the threshold value, an event triggers together with the alert "Hardware is in warning or critical state."

To find all sensors available on a node, select Node in the Group By list, and select the node.

  1. Go to Manage Hardware Sensors view (Settings > All Settings > Node & Group Management > Manage Hardware Sensors).
  2. Select the sensor that you want to edit, and click Edit Thresholds.
  3. Select how you want to change the selected hardware sensor's status:

    Use Orion Defaults

    This is the default setting. Use the built-in Orion logic to translate thresholds configured on the device to statuses. 

    Force to Up

    If you are not concerned about a sensor, select this option. The sensor will always be displayed as UP, ignoring the real data from the sensor.

    Set Custom Thresholds

    Use the dynamic query builder to define the status for the selected sensor.

  4. Click Submit.

The status of the hardware health sensor will now be governed by the specified threshold.
