Some sensors not showing up using Gauges Small map property




I am trying to build a map that monitors switch up/down state using the Device Tree Small map property. When I drag certain groups of devices onto the map, all of the ping sensors for the devices in question are shown. But other groups show only a couple ping sensors or none at all. Is there a device or sensor property that I need to change in order for that device's ping sensor to show up? Also, as a follow up, is there a way to append the name of the device before the sensor's name?

Thanks in advance.

Could you post a screenshot of what you mean? I don't really understand what you're trying to achieve :) As for the latter, that's not possible unfortunately.

If I pull in one group of devices, all of the ping sensors show up. But for the second group, none of them are there. Each group contains the same type of devices.

You almost got me on this one - is it possible that they all have a ★★★☆☆ priority?
They should show up when you increase it to ★★★★☆ or ★★★★★ :)

Hi Ryan Bove,

If you dont mind me asking, how did you create a single with multiple ping sensor like the screenshot you shared?

That's under Device Tree Views | Gauges. There are multiple variants, all of them show Sensors according to their priority, so you'll need to configure them. Make sure to select a group in the left tree map panel when dragging this object onto the map.
