I'm afraid that isn't possible. The limit is hard-coded and there are no current plans to change the same. Sorry.

Hi Jiri,

This is possible using the API

/api/table.xml?content=sensors&output=xml&columns=downtimesince&id=xxxx

Will give you information on how long the sensor with id xxxx is down.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
  <sensors>
   <prtg-version>12.4.7.3475</prtg-version>
   <item>
    <downtimesince>4 d 5 h 59 m</downtimesince>
    <downtimesince_raw>000000000367160</downtimesince_raw>
   </item>
  </sensors>

Using a Custom Sensor, you can return the number of days the given sensor is down and set a notification on that value.

Regards,
