Hi there,

I appreciate your contact.

Please make yourself comfortable with Scheduling in PRTG. You can define an active time period between 04:00 and 07:00 and define the schedule either directly on the sensor or the notification that is been used for the sensor.

A schedule on a sensor will pause the sensor out of the active time period. A schedule on the notification on the other hand, will ensure a continuous monitoring of the sensor, but there won't be any notification triggers outside active hours.

The scanning interval of the sensor is set to 5 minutes in any case.
