Can you Acknowledge a Warning ?



If I go to the Sensor Menu of an individual Warning, the option " Acknowlegde alarm " is not displayed.

If I go to the "Sensors with status warning" overview, and I click "Select all", in the green bar above the checkbox the left icon displays a Menu. There " Acknowlege alarm(s) " is an option, but when I select "Until", the warnings won't be acknowledged. The Pause option works fine.

In this case it's about the System Uptime sensor. To put that sensor on Pause or on Acknowlegde makes no difference to me. But on other sensors, for example disk free space, I don't want to pause the sensor but acknowledge to keep Historic Data.

Little deficiency or works as designed ?

We are using PRTG x64

This works as designed. The acknowledge alarms option is only available for DOWN / error state alarms.
