How can you monitor the up/down status of a Ping for public usage?



The goal is to have a Map created that shows the up/down status of a number of Ping sensors. This Map is to be published on a webpage, etc.

However, Unusuals appear as the icon instead of the green check mark for some of the servers. I see that I can disable Unusuals for the sensors, but I want to keep them for my usage and not let the public see them.

It seems redundant to create those same ping sensors twice: one tracking unusuals for my usage, and one showing up/down status with unusual tracking disabled - these ones being placed on the Map.

What is the best way to configure the sensors in this manner?

Unusual detection can not be turned off for individual sensors, sorry.
