I'm trying to setup a threshold trigger for an uptime channel on a device. Easy enough to do. Beyond that, I want to eliminate a redundant notification trigger that will always happen when a manual process occurs as a result of that notification.
I have three identical devices that I monitor. When the device loses power from a power outage, brown out, or other 'building wide' power loss, I want to send out a notification to a group of users so they can power down the device(s) in question, then bring them back up, as this would prevent issues with that device when they ultimately go to use it a week later.
I can think of 2 ways to do this, but I don't believe either way is possible within PRTG currently, so I'm asking if someone knows a way to do it. (Perhaps through custom sensors?)
Possible option 1 - Conditional Formatting. Have an IF statement on the trigger, IF notification sent within 24 hours, do not send another notification.
Possible option 2 - Someway somehow do multi-channel conditional triggers. I.E. If in Group A - Device 1/2/3, system uptime channels >900 seconds, DO NOTIFICATION.
I know it's possible to have inheritance of notifications to make PRTG easier to manage, but I'm not aware of anyway to achieve what I'm trying to do from what research I've done on it so far.
