Make "HTTP/1.1 503 Service Temporarily Unavailable" a warning not an alert



Is there a way to get the HTTP sensor to make the HTTP response "HTTP/1.1 503 Service Temporarily Unavailable" a warning instead of an alert? We have staging and dev servers we like to monitor with less urgency and sometimes they are put into a mode where they return 503 for days and it'd be nice if we weren't alerted about it in the first place.

no this is not possible with the existing HTTP sensors in PRTG but you might have a look at this workaround which allows you to read the HTTP status code.
