Is there a way to make the notification system redundant?

I was hoping there is some method to make the notification portion of PRTG redundant. Is there anyway to allow the remote probes to send there own emails instead of relying on the central server? Or of clustering the Main database/server across a WAN to ensure notifications are sent, even if one device has died or lost connectivity?

Thanks

You're right - to monitor if your PRTG system itself is up and running, you cannot use a remote probe. In this case, we recommend monitoring PRTG with another instance of PRTG from another computer. For detailed information, please see:

Dear Ted,

I'm afraid the probes are technically simply not able to send out notifications, nor is there a clustering available in the moment.

Best Regards.

So how can I have a PRTG probe that monitors the main server? I need to know when the PRTG systems are down so I can resolve the issue proactively. If I happen to lose power on the main server I will not get any notifications.

Suggestions?
