we are facing the problem that we do not understand the reason why a sensor has a specific state (red, yellow, green). In our scenarios, we have multiple channels in a sensor which can have the three different states.
Most of the times it works as expected, if atleast one channel is in warning or error state, the whole sensor is in a warning/error state. But we are facing the situation where some channels might not receive data anymore because the source has been disconnected (intentionally). And because channels can not be deleted once created, we have some channels ''laying around'' that do not receive any data.
It seems that in some cases where most of the channels do not receive data, the whole sensor is in a (red) error state. In other cases where many channels receive data and only a few do not receive data the whole sensor is again in a (green) correct state.
We would like to know how exactly the state of a sensor is determined and how it can be manipulated. To be more specific, we would like to make the state of a sensor dependend from one specific channel and ''ignore'' the other channels (eventhough we would like to monitor the states of the other channels as well).
Any help is appreciated very much.
