Change/Alter Business Process Sensor behavior for Paused Child sensors



Your Vote:



When a child object/sensor of a business process sensor is in a paused state, it moves the business process sensor into a down state, although there may be valid reason for the child sensor to be in a paused state, perhaps for some kind of scheduled maintenance. It would be nice if this either didn't escalate the business process to a down state, or how it treated a paused sensor was configurable inside of the business process settings.

I agree with Jake that the BPS needs to behave the same as other sensors in regards to a paused state would indicate an unknown status. I'm at a loss as to why this is the behavior. It makes reporting with the BPS very difficult.
