Hi there,

You have a library with Ping sensors exclusively or are there different sensors and you just want to be notified in case of all Ping sensors are down?

You could use the API of PRTG (Setup > PRTG API > to list all sensors with a certain status in the library (parameter: "&filter_tags=@tag(pingsensor)&filter_status=5&filter_status=13"). Afterwards you can use this API call in a XML/Rest Sensor to count all down Ping sensors. There you can add thresholds if the found sensors are more than X (total amount of Ping sensors in the Library).

Best regards.

Hi there,

If you only have two sensors that you want to monitor in a single status, then you can use the "Business Process Sensor".

Best regards.
