Thresholding on custom poller metrics on an instance level

Currently, thresholding on custom poller metrics is available on an Object level, but it is not possible to specify the exact instance of the object that needs to be monitored. For example, the Entity Sensor MIB, (, has a "entPhySensorValue" Object that contains sensor values from all physical sensors of a network device. It does not make sense to report on this object as an aggregate value as all of the sensors are different.  

We would like to be able to specify thresholds for objects down to the instance level so that physical sensors can be appropriately monitored on Network devices. The objects are already broken out and individually selectable in NNMi in the "Custom Polled Instances" menu, this would be the ideal place to further set alerts on thresholds.

Dear Submitter,

Thanks for the idea.

Putting the threshold for each of the instances is going to be very time consuming for your administrators. Would you like us to consider enabling baseline on these instances so that you can work with a dynamic threshold?
