Do not show down if ping fails



We have several access points that are on mobile carts. They are unplugged and stored often.

Is there a way to prevent them from showing Failed? I want to collect performance data when they are in use, but do not want them to appear on the dashboard when they are not connected.

Dear Jeff,

the only option is to use the "Auto Acknowledgment"-setting in the ping sensors, then the sensor will be automatically acknowledged if they fail, but might still appear on the dashboard though.

best regards.

On the Google Code project, there is a Ping sensor that goes into a warning state when the ping fails.
