Syslog-Probe: Error or Message when no incoming Message in a timespan



Hi, I have a Syslog-Probe and it's working. But I need an error/notification, if the laste message is older than 10 Minutes. Is there a way for that?

I set a speed-trigger with "if chanel notification for 600 seconds equals 0/second send email", but that didn't work.

Has someone an idea?

regards, Jan

Hi Jan,

Thanks for contacting us.

Does the channel has limits? There is a gear icon right next to the channels in the Syslog sensor and you can set the limits there too and this should notify then this issue happens.
