Warning/Down Sensors Displaying Incorrectly on Maps



After the last update or so, the Warning and Down sensors Map item will randomly show UP and Unusual sensors for a period of time. I uploaded a screenshot here:

Which version of PRTG are you currently running? If it is less than then please log into the shop and download and install the new version and see if that resolves this issue.

In order to access the download link to the newest version you have to log into your online account and download it there.

Please use the email address the license is registered to and your password to log in here: https://service.paessler.com/en/login/

Once you have downloaded the newest version there, you can install it directly over the version currently running. The configuration and database will not be affected by installing the newer version over the old and the configuration is automatically backed up before this process.

I'm running I hadn't noticed this issue until 2685.

Side question: Why are all your releases slashed? ie,, etc. Is there a difference between the two?

The releases are slashed because those are the Freeware/Stable versions. Can you submit a ticket to [email protected] with log in information for the PRTG installation if it is accessible by internet along with your logs?
