Updating probe's without downtime



We have a remote probe wich requires an uptime of at least 99,5%. I've just updated PRTG and we saw a the downtime is now 99,58%, is it possible to update PRTG without the downtime for a sensor/probe?

Dear Arno

The update of PRTG requires a service restart for both the core and the probe(s), meaning there will always be a small downtime. Usually the downtime is in the range of very few minutes.
