Monitoring redundant devices



Hey there,

i have a question about monitoring redundant devices that have been grouped.

For example, in our network we have - like most companies - multiple redundant Domain Controllers that we have grouped together depending on their location. Is it possible to set up the triggers in such a way that we would only get a "Critical" notification if both of them are down and only a Warning if one is fully functioning while the other is experiencing errors or warnings ?

Dear Andre,

You can deploy a Business Process Sensor. This allows you to define how many sensors of a certain condition should change the status of the Business Process Sensor to warning or error.

Kind regards,
