Delay sensor till finish of all other



Hello, I'm running various sensors targeting the same webservice. Unfortunately the webservice doesn't allow more than 1 request in parallel with the sessionID I have to use. Is there any possibility to delay the start of sensors till there is no other sensor active within the group? In other words: How to configure a group to have only one sensor active in the related group? Many thank in advance. thomas gottfried

A Custom Sensor has the option to set a Mutex name. Sensors with the same Mutex name are executed one by one. So, if you can use a Custom Sensor instead of the build in sensor that you are using now, this is possible.
