Probe Health Hosted Cluster Server - Open Requests



This morning I had to upgrade from to We were unable to add new devices to a Hosted Probe Cluster Server. This was the remediation action recommended by Paessler. Shortly after upgrading my system, I started having probe health issues, specifically on my Hosted Probe Clustered servers (Master and Failover). I am looking at the historical "Open Requests" channel and I went from an average of about 17 - 30 messages open to well over 220 items open. I am seeing this behavior on both my Master and my Secondary. Is this a known issue? I've been running PRTG since version 17 and I have never seen this issue. If I expand my time frame out on my probe sensors to about 30 days, the average is around 19 open items. I haven't change the configuration since the upgrade/patch this morning.

Hello Khue,

Thank you very much for reaching out.

This is definitely not an expected behavior and it might be influenced by the update itself which triggers each sensor after the master and failover node came back up.

Please observe the behavior, I expect it to settle within some time. If the situation does not improve, please don't hesitate to contact us via the "Contact Support" button from the PRTG web interface. This way you'll send us a support bundle and allow us to check the log files to see what's going on here.

Best regards,
