Symptoms

Customer is trying to monitor CPU usage in WLS 10.3.x using SNMP gauge monitors. The online help for this at http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E24329_01/apirefs.1211/e24401/taskhelp/snmp/ConfigureGaugeMonitors.html says:

"A gauge monitor periodically checks the value of an integer or floating-point attribute and generates a notification if the value exceeds a threshold."

They're setting it up in their config.xml file as follows:

So there is a discrepancy between the WLS documentation and the WLS code. Either there is no way of monitoring non-integer values using SNMP as described in the documentation, or the code is wrong and non-integer values should be accepted in these places.
