Disable Down Status



For the snmp traffic sensor... Under normal operations this sensor shows as down if the connection is actually down. Is there anyway to keep this sensor in an up state if the connection goes down?

Thank you

Dear Sean, you can adjust the behaviour of your SNMP Traffic Sensor by adjusting the Connection State Handling Setting under the Traffic specific Group of your Sensor Settings.
