Notification based on historical data



I need to perform an alert based on the decrease in the value of incoming data for the last 3 minutes.

I have a custom sensor that receives data about the number of incoming calls in PBX , and if the number of calls is less than 30% than it was 3 minutes ago, you need to perform an alert or switch the sensor to an alarm status

Hi Mr_Dimitriy,

This is not possible in PRTG. However, if you use a EXE/Script Sensor, you can do the check in your script. If the condition is fulfilled, the script can send an error code to PRTG which triggers the notification.
