Trigger an alert only when two sensors are down.



We are currently monitoring several websites from two locations. It seems that the ISP at one location is doing some work on their network at night causing brief connection issues to some of the sites, and thus sending out alerts.

Is there a way to have the alert be generated only if the sensor from probe 1 and probe 2 are down, and not if only one of the two is down?

You can use the Sensor Factory Sensor and use the Custom Formula | Status Definition with e.g. status(SensorID1) AND status(SensorID2) to just get into an error state if both sensors are down.
