Aggregating downtime of multiple devices

Good afternoon!

I have a client with a point-to-point link where I monitor the devices on each end and if either one of them go offline the whole circuit is unusable. When I need to show the availability of the circuit I need to manually superimpose the downtime of each device and add them up to calculate the overall downtime.

Is there a way I can aggregate the downtime of multiple devices more easily, for instance into a single sensor?

Sorry, the downtime of device can't be aggregated within a factory sensor, which would usually be the go-to tool. You may want to use PRTGs API and a custom powershell script sensor that gathers the readings from PRTG and does the corresponding calculations.

I see.

Would you know if this functionality is in the todo list for the near future?

It has been asked sometimes. However, we won't implement it because the overall average uptime across multiple devices isn't that useful for the majority of the userbase :)
