Email notifications showing %state



Thanks in advance for any help you can offer. Our email notifications when a node is down are showing as "PING: MACHINE (Ping) is %state". As opposed to state Down. Any ideas why its appearing that way?

Thank you for your KB-post.

Please note that the placeholder %state is deprecated as of PRTG version 16.x.24. Please use %status instead which has the same functionality.

For more information about the placeholders, please see this page: https://kb.paessler.com/en/topic/373-what-placeholders-can-i-use-with-prtg
