Keep alarm in other color, after reverting to normal state




Is there a way, that when a sensor is in error state is (aka cpu=100%) and reverting back to normal values (aka cpu=10%) the sensor will still report error. (aka in another color?).

if this is possible, we are able to identify strange behaviors, and could review the sensor, equipment, and acknowledge still the strange behavior. i know that there is a unusual detection system, but that's not what we are looking for.

Regards, Kenneth

Dear Kenneth D

A PRTG sensor shows the current status only. We decided early on to use a minimum of sensor statuses to keep the interface as clear as possible. That also means that PRTG cannot show every condition which could be useful.

If you want to get notified in cases of an error, please use the notification function. A notification can create a ticket which can be viewed, commented on or solved within the PRTG interface.
