User Story

As a PRTG User, I want an additional Parameter in the Scanning Interval-Section of Settings in Business Process Sensors

Details of User Story

Business Process Sensors are able to summerize multiple sensors outputs and react as "UP" and "DOWN". It is possible to define a scanning interval eg. 1min. In some cases it would be relevant to define a additional switching hysteresis to ignore short "impacts".

Behavior without switching hysteresis: Impact-->next Scanning interval-->Business Process Sensor goes "DOWN"-->Impact is gone-->next Scanning interval-->Business Process Sensor goes "UP"

Behavior with switching hysteresis: (pass 3 Intervals, then "DOWN", pass 1 Interval, then "UP") Impact-->3 x Scanning intervals-->Business Process Sensor goes "DOWN"-->Impact is gone-->1 x Scanning interval-->Business Process Sensor goes "UP"

Acceptance criteria

Criterion #1: additional option to define a Switching Hysteresis in the settings of Business Process Sensors
