One out of two sensors working



I don't know if this is possible, but I have 2 servers and I want to check that one of the servers has a service running. I'm not concerned if both are down, but I would need to know that that one of the services is running on one of the servers, I don't want both services running at the same time. Can this be monitored?

you might have a look at the Sensor Factory Sensor for this purpose. You can define different channels from source sensors and you can also define on which condition the sensor goes down.
Best regards
