Monitoring several backup Jobs

Hello, guys!

I'm trying to monitor an arcserve backup with an IMAP sensor. But the trouble is that the sensor reads only the last message in the inbox. So, if only one in lots of backup jobs fails, the sensor gets down, but it gets up again when an e-mail of a successfull job arrives, so we'll keep unaware of the failure. It would be better if the sensor keeps down until I remove the failure message of the Inbox. How can I do that?

Hello,

Thank you very much for using PRTG. May I ask, which exact version of PRTG are you running? Can you please include a screenshot showing the exact sensor settings of this IMAP Sensor?

best regards.

Hi, Torsten!

Thanks for the reply.

Our PRTG version is PRTG Network Monitor Unlimited build 15.1.14.1710

It follows a link with an pdf of the sensor description. It would get to huge for an image.

Another relevant information:

We have another IMAP sensor which in the session "Sensor Behavior" it is configured as Regular Expression check method instead of String Search, like the pdf I just sent.

Unfortunately the PDF screenshot is not complete. Please use a inbuilt screenshot feature in PRTG to send us a screenshot of the sensor settings to a new support case with reference to this KB-Thread. Thank you!
