Status "Decommissioned"



Per our company policy, whenever a server is being decommissioned and replaced with a new one, we're required to still have the PRTG data available in order to be able to compare performance between new/old server.

For that reason, I'd like to suggest (or request) adding the following additional status besides "paused" and "acknowledged": decommissioned.

Technically, it can do the very same as "pausing", but visually, it's shows separately with a different color/icon.

there will be no additional "decomissioned" status in PRTG in future. Sorry. You might just use the comment function when pausing the sensor.
Best regards
