In which order does custom sensors with the same mutex runs?



Hi, I have a device with 3 custom EXE sensors. I use the same mutex string for all of them.

I wonder in which order those sensors run/probe. What I want is that the 1st sensor that runs, write a command output to a file. That will be used in sensors 2 and 3. This way I can save execution time since the command takes 1 second to run. Also, I will more consistent data since every time the command run, the output change and I want to have a snapshot of the data.

Thanks Oliver

Sensors are monitored on a distributed basis, so that wouldn't really help you. Wouldn't it be possible to include the dependency directly in the code and then call the sensor?
