Edit hardware health thresholds in SAM

Updated: 3-9-2017

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.

Use Orion Defaults

Use thresholds configured on the device. This is the default setting.

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.

  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:
  4. Click Submit.

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