change color of status sensors based on thresholds



Is would be good to have the ability to change the status-color based on definable thresholds ( like for notifications ), e.g. a ping-sensor goes to yellow if the ping-response-time is bigger than x ms for e.g. 300sec or the cisco-vpn-traffic or a snmp-traffic-sensor switch to yellow if bandwidth ( or transferred volume ) is bigger than x for e.g. 300 seconds / or go to red on other thresholds ( e.g. bigger that x for 3000 seconds ) This would allow a better visual experience than displaying the bandwidth or ping-time chart and not only alert when ping or the other sensors are completely down or failing.

Hi Franz,

Isn't this what you want?


You can set upper/lower warning and error limits. The graphs help make it visible and of course the overall status would change and fire notifications..
