Maps Connectors

Is it possible to make the connectors go red only when the Ping Sensor is down? Also, can you make the red more visible, the red indicator of the line doesn't even reach half of the line plus the red color is very light. Another concern, when two devices connected with a connector has a closer distance, the red line is not even visible. I can send you a screenshot if needed.

Thanks!

Sorry, but it is not possible to have the line colour only dependent from a single sensor. As the colour gradient is from red to green in short lines the red nearly unvisible. And the colour gradient is also the reason for shorter red colour.

Can you recommend any workaround for it? Currently, we're displaying it on our LED Screen, we encountered a downtime on one of our firewall then we did not immediately notice is as there is no red line visible. You have to take a closer look to notice the red background of the device.

Hope you can make some improvements for this.

Thanks!

Which objects do you use? maybe you choose an object, where the number of senors in the different states are also shown (in the default Icons e.g., then you directly see when you have "red" sensors and can check them or you increase the distance on the map accordingly.
