Hi there,

Thank you very much for your contact.

The partial down sensor state means that at least one node reports this sensor as down. The probably best approach would be to contact us via e-mail to [email protected] and also submit a full-screen, non-cropped screenshot of the sensor's Overview, Log and Settings tab.
This is most likely necessary, because it improves the future way of analysis than over our knowledge base.

Feel free to refer to this knowledge base article, so the case is already assigned to me.

Thank you very much in advance.

I got sometimes this problem with my clustered PRTG. A workaround to avoid this kind of partial alarms is to (once a month for example) schedule a regular reboot of your probes and CoreServer. With a cluster, there is no problem to do that.

Temporarly, it "resolve" the problem for me.

Also, send a report to the support in aim to improve the cluster :)
