Remote Probes notify immediately when there's an issue with the probe itself



It seems when I lose connectivity to a remote probe, the system immediately alerts me... I can't find where to relax these restrictions.

I'd like to be able to wait a configurable amount of time before a disconnected remote probe causes the main probe to alert me.

Sometimes remote probes will immediately notify me when there's a very ephemeral network issue, or if a user reboots the machine. I'd like to wait after a period of unreachability, say 5 minutes, before I'm notified.

How can I accomplish this?

Thank you, Bill

What notification triggers do you have defined on your Probe Health sensor? This is the only thing that will define how soon a notification is sent out.
