Partial Up and up notifications



Your Vote:



We're using a PRTG Cluster now since some weeks. Is there a possibility to send up mails instead of partial down mails in state triggers? So we'd like to have the possibility to get a message when the server is up (reachable from both cluster nodes) instead of this partial down, when just one cluster probe can reach it.

Dear Mr. Schönemann

This kind of heartbeat notification is not directly possible. You could run an Exe/Script Advanced sensor which runs a script which gets the sensor status of the sensor in question via the API. If you include


in the <channel> node, you trigger the Change Trigger Notification. To not trigger that notification, please omit the <notifychanged> tag entirely.

An example API call to get the sensor status of the sensor with the ID 2345


Relevant return values are: 3 for Up, and 14 for PartialDown.
