Down

Hello,

We use 2 ping sensors to determine if we have internet connectivity. 1 Could go down while we still have internet, 2 down is unlikely.

I would like to set up a notification to some people when 2 ping sensors go down to notify them that internet is down.

Is this possible, or do you have another suggestion?

Thanks.

-Jason

Hello Jason,

Since you're mostly interested in the source sensor's status, we've also recently introduced the Business Process Sensor which can give you a summary status while monitoring several individual components(sensors, devices).

And if you haven't yet, please check this article on monitoring multiple internet links with fail-over.

Best Regards,
