I have a unique case where I need to monitor one carrier gateway device, while at the same time, monitoring another devices from another carrier/security company. The problem is, the carrier is not going down, the security company is. The security company uses a Cisco router, while the carrier has their standard gateway. However, currently, we monitor the security company's equipment not the carrier's, so I must first call the carrier to verify if the circuit is working or not, then, call the security company if the carrier circuit is up.
We are kind of in the middle of a debate between the security company and our company because they believe it's the carrier going down all the time (which it's not). Basically, I CAN monitor both the carrier equipment and the security but, I cannot name them to distinguish between the to (I have to go by IP) and the script I wrote will show one sensor alarming but it will be a -1 which PRTG does not like.
I hope this made sense. If someone has an idea for a script, or a solution I would appreciate it very much.
