Cluster failover timer



Dear Support, When using a PRTG cluster, is it possible to adjust the 'timeout' value used to determine when to change the master node to a failover node?

How is the decision taken to classify the master node as 'down' and change to another cluster node?

Regards, Olof Nord

Dear Olof

PRTG uses an active/active cluster. The failover nodes monitor all the time, even when the master node is running, too.
