Wishlist: Deactivate Sensors for a known fix time



If you have Devices/Sensors which are connected via DSL, there is a known short breakup every 24h from the provider. You can't hide this from Error reporting, Statistics, etc.

There should be an Option "known Downtime" for Groups and/or Devices/Sensors at: Time (hh:mm ) and a downtime length (minutes): examples 23:59 and 3 Minutes. At this time the last Status before must freeze.

PRTG 9 will offer more flexible schedules that allow you to pause groups, devices, sensors for minutes. That should fix you issue.

PRTG 9 is expected for end of 2011

U can wait for the new version or u can create a custom script and control the sensor though the PRTG API if there's a hurry for this feature.
