Temperature monitor checks manufacturer-specific temperature probes to see if they return a value signaling they are in an Up state. The monitor initially checks the manufacturer of the device (Cisco, Dell, HP, or Ravica, for example). It then checks enabled temperature probes.
If a temperature probe is disabled, the monitor ignores it. If a temperature probe does not return one of the following run state indicators (with respect to the manufacturer), the monitor is considered Down.
Only a unique name and description are required to successfully configure this monitor, though you can click Advanced to set the SNMP timeout and number of retries as well as enable Use in Rescan if desired.
