Is it possible scheduling a pause for a sensor?



In the options I can just pause a sensor for a predefined time-frame or enter for how long the sensor should be paused. What I'm missing is the option to say I need the sensor being paused from date / time until date / time. Is that somehow possible and if not is it planned for one of the next versions?

I have the same question. I would like to pause a sensor between say 04:30 and 05:00 as it always complains (every night) but that what it complains about, is expected and desired behavior.

Is this possible. Maybe via an external script that runs by means of the Windows task scheduler that "tells" PRTG to pause a couple of sensors between 04:30 and 05:00 ?

With the newest version, you can go into the Setup->Account Settings -> Schedules and define a schedule for your devices. Then you can set this up on a specific device or you set this schedule for a group and have the devices inherit this setting.
