Hi Team ,
I got request from customer that they want the threshold line in our DCE report , for example , can we
set 2 KW as the threshold line in the rPDU report ? Please see the screenshot .
Or this function can fulfill on DCO insight ?

As far as I know, DCE report does not have a feature of showing threshold line as shown in your screen shot. I think you may submit this feature request enhancement here.
I also let other community experts to suggest if there is any other option is available.

I believe Bala is correct.
You may be able to "twist" DCE into doing this. You'll need a sensor with a constant value of whatever threshold they want, looks like 2000 (W) in your example. If you can find a sensor that has that constant value then you should be able to add it to the graph. Not sure how this will work though, seems a little flaky.
Another option would be to use a virtual sensor (sum or avg) of several other sensors to get to the desired threshold, again perhaps flaky.
And then perhaps another option would be to run an SNMP agent, say on a PC, and set an OID to the desired value. You'll then need a DDF for the agent. Not too difficult all up, a few hours of engineering but I wonder how important this feature is to the customer. I know the old UCD SNMP Agent had this capability. Having set this threshold up for this purpose then it's easy to expnd to meet other similar requirement. The DDF would most likely ned to chnage for each chnage to the agent.
And I suspect DCO Insight can do this if customer has it
Please let the form know how you go

Hi Ed , Thanks for advise , our customer is a co-lo provider so that they need the the report for instant KW value , the threshold line is important for them because it can compare and pre-alarm . Customer had the insight module and maybe I need try this feature , thank you again . Best Regards
