Is it possible to run Remote Probes as a cluster?



We have a single-server PRTG Core and have remote probes in various locations. Some locations are more important to reliably monitor than others and we recently had a hardware failure that resulted in the remote probe going offline. Is it possible to cluster the probes themselves in some way so that if one fails another one can take over without PRTG thinking they are different probes with different devices monitored through them?

I'm afraid at the moment it is not possible to cluster remote probes. This topic is already on the agenda for upcoming versions but not final decisions have been made.
Best regards
