Which Sensor should I use???



I am trying to monitor a site which has different nodes if you will. The data i receive from the site looks like this..

  "ace" : {
    "healthy" : true
  "deadlocks" : {
    "healthy" : true

I want to show if "ace" is true then the sensor is green. I was using the HTML XML/Rest Sensor but when one goes down they all show internal error 500. Am I using the right sensor? can anyone offer any advice?

If you're abel to create a script for your query, then I would recommend to create the EXE/Script Advanced sensor to monitor the desired information. You can find more information about this sensor here.

Kind regards
