Custom alerts



Hi, is there a way to only alert (email, sms, etc.) the sys admins only if 10% or more of a group of sensors is down?

Specifically we would like to monitor a pool of 40 Citrix servers. We would like to receive an email only if 4 (10%) or more of the servers is not responding to ping test.

Thank you.

Dear duchotan, you can use a Custom Sensor from prtgtoolsfamily to achieve this.


With this Sensor you can track the Status of all Sensors under a specified group. By Setting Limits on the Value Channel of this Sensor and configure a Notification your needs should be fullfilled.
