Splunk IT Service Intelligence

Why can I not set decimal numbers as threshold values for entity type vital metrics?



Using Splunk Enterprise 8.2.6 and ITSI Version 4.11.5

I am defining entity types and I need to set CPU usage thresholds as follows:

  • >=95 warning
  • >=98 critical

The interface only lets me set "greater than" or "less than":


I figured that if I set values to 97.9 and 94.9 then I can configure the thresholds correctly.  Only problem is that this is not permitted even though the metrics themselves are displayed with decimals!


This is very problematic oversight because I won't be able to set and monitor any thresholds 100% reliably

How can I get around this issue?
