PRTG Sensor dependency




is there the possibility to create a sensor which get to alarm state (red) if other two sensors get to alarm state (red)? I want to get a notification just if those 2 sensors get in alarm state, if just one gets to alarm state the third sensor should just get into warning (yellow).

Basically I have two IP SLA sensors but the service actually get to a down state if both IP SLAs go down.

Any suggestion how I can perform this on PRTG Version ?

Thanks upfront

The option isn't available in native sensor, as you cannot setup a dependency to two other sensor.
Maybe the factory sensor or the business process sensor can help you to setup the desired configuration.
