Ping device that has multiple ip addresses.



Hello. I want a ping device that has multiple ip addresses. I use PTF.StatisticalPingXML but it creates a separate channel for each address.

Example: -h =,,

In PTF.StatisticalPingXML, if you set limits, then if one of the addresses falls, there will be a sensor error. I want one of the addresses available, then the sensor is OK. If all three are unavailable, then an error occurs. How to do it?

Thank you.

Dear Skipus,

this is not directly possible. An – admittedly complicated – option would be using three separate sensors and compute a combined status with the Business Process sensor.
