Sensor Factory with Custom SNMP Limits

Dear All

I do have multiple redundant pairs of firewalls, proxies and load balancers which I'm monitoring via SNMP from PRTG.

This are specific checks for e.g. a VPN or a virtual service being available.

To define the status I've set on each sensor's snmp channel (ID 0) the "Upper Error Limit" and "Lower Error Limit" which works perfectly as desired.

Whowever when I'm adding a sensor factory to a new fake device containig the sensors for VPN TEST from device A and device B, the sensor factory doesn't care about the "Limits" defined on those underlying sensor's snmp channel.

Trying to get the same behavior as with the single snmp sensors does also not work If I set the "Upper Error Limit" and "Lower Error Limit" on the two channels in the sensor factory.

If what I try to achieve is not possible then I have to say that the sensor factory really failed and missed a big usage scenario.

Sensor Factory Channel Config:

#1:NodeONE(V_SMTP)
Channel(3912,0)
#2:NodeTWO(V_SMTP)
Channel(3680,0)

Thank you for your time and efforts!

Hello,

of course the Sensor Factory supports Error- and Warning-Limits (its own, not the limits of source channels). We couldn't reproduce any malfunctioning with the latest version of PRTG 8.4.2.

best regards.
