Is there a way to set notifications based on sensor priority?

I have around 300 sensors out of 10,000 which need to be monitored 24/7, I've set them all at priority 5, none of the others are priority 5. I want to have separate notifications for these sensors, which are spread amongst various groups and probes.

Any idea on how I can do this?

I'm on prtg 9.

You can now add notifications to PRTG Libraries. And libraries can be show sensors filtered by priority.

So, basically, go to the following steps:

  • Create a new library in PRTG
  • Add a single group or your entire installation to this library, simply by using drag&drop
  • Then right-click on the library node(s) and select Edit | Settings. Filter your sensors by priority.
  • After your library contains all sensors you would like to include, change to the Notifications tab and add a new trigger, for example, a State Trigger for the condition Down.
  • Your newly created notification trigger will be valid for all sensors in your library. If you add or remove a sensor from the library, this will affect the notification trigger accordingly.

hallo,

we are already working on a solution, but that one will not be available before the next major release.

It might be possible then to add notification for certain tagged sensors or to add a notification to a library object.

If your Notification runs a custom script (execute program), you can read the Sensor Priority by using the %Prio placeholder as an input to the script. Then you can evaluate the Sensor Priority in the script, and initiate different actions depends on the priority (or combination of Status and priority).
