User Story

As a PRTG User, I want to have a monitoring of my monitoring, e.g. my PRTG Core server. I do not want to host myself a service or PRTG freeware installation outside of my network for checking, but I want a service hosted / offered by Paessler.

Details of User Story

At the moment it’s only possible to have like a [Master Heartbeat] between the two nodes of a PRTG Cluster on the one hand and hosting a PRTG freeware installation just for aiming a ping at my PRTG Core server. I would like to have a service hosted / offered by Paessler that would be included in my maintenance contract. To cover non-public instances as well, a ping (not literally) between my instances and the monitoring instance could be used.

Acceptance criteria

As a PRTG customer, I'd like to be notified by Paessler when my PRTG Server is no longer available due to an outage.
