Hi, I m looking to modify scanning interval for some ping sensors. What I want to do is to be able to ping a server every 60 seconds to get the graph, but i only want to get a warning if ping is down for more than 4 hours so 240 intervals and an error if ping is down for more than 1 day so 1440 intervals and I cant use notifications as I want to get the sensor state on a Maps. Is this possible? Thanks, Simon

Hello hogsim,

Thank you very much for your knowledge base post.

I'm sorry to tell that it is not possible to configure a scanning interval of 60 seconds on the one hand, and on the other hand to define a warning/error state after 4 hours or 24 hours.
This is caused due to PRTG's program code and error handling in case of failed requests. I try to illustrate this as follows:

ScanResultSensor state
1Ping successfulUp
2Ping not successfulWarning
3Ping not successfulDown
4Ping successfulUp


Because you configured a scanning interval of 60 seconds, the very next failed sensor scan will change the sensor's state. There is no way of configuring this, I'm sorry.

Best,
Sebastian
