MinMax Threshold

MinMax thresholds inspect incoming data to determine whether it exceeds a given maximum or falls below a given minimum. You can use a MinMax threshold to check for these scenarios:

  • The current value is less than a minimum value. To do this, you should set only a minimum value for the threshold. Any value less than this number results in creation of a threshold event.
  • The current value is greater than a maximum value. To do this, you should set only a maximum value for the threshold. Any value greater than this number results in creation of a threshold event.
  • The current value is not a single, pre-defined number. To do this, you should set the minimum and maximum values for the threshold to the same value. This will be the only "good" number. If the returned value is not this number, then a threshold event is created.
  • The current value falls outside a pre-defined range. To do this, you should set the minimum value to the lowest value within the good range, and the maximum value to the highest value within the good range. If the returned value is less than the minimum, or greater than the maximum, then a threshold event is created.
  • The current value falls within a pre-defined range. To do this, you should set the minimum value to the highest value within the bad range, and the maximum value to the lowest value within the bad range. If the returned value is greater than the maximum, and less than the minimum, then a threshold event is created.
