sensor uptime



hi team,
I have a question for you, what protocol do you use to take the uptime sensor? what is the icmp / ping protocol? or other? I have a problem for the uptime sensor which sometimes has holes like the bandwidth is not shared, if so I will try to prioritize the icmp / ping protocol as a priority.

best regrads felix.

Hello Felix,

Which Uptime sensor are you using? The Windows System Uptime Sensor is using WMI as protocol. The SNMP System Uptime Sensor is using SNMP.
