How to calculate Uptime for a PING sensor instead of downtime?

I have tried following formula for a channel definition in a Sensor Factory:

  1. 1:Uptime % 100-Channel(2004,-4)

(2004 is an ID of a PING sensor in my test case; -4 is downtime channel of a PING sensor)

Above formula seems to work only for a channel data which gets shown only on current (default 2 hours) graphs. All the other graphs for that Sensor Factory do not calculate properly - in other words: there is no data (empty results) calculated for older data, at all. Am I doing something wrong or should this work?

Hello,

I'm sorry but the downtime channel (ID -4) contains specific values, not matching the 'structure' of normal monitoring values, and therefore this channel cannot be used in the Sensor Factory for calculations.

best regards.
