How to see cluster sensors separately



Hi all.

I have an HA cluster I want to monitor in PRTG. However, I want to be able to see sensors for each separate device so that if a sensor of one of the devices in the HA cluster goes down, I know what sensor of which device in that cluster is down.

If you can point me to links and resources, will be great. In the mean time I'm also scouring the internet. No luck thus far. Maybe my search keywords are wrong.

the requirement here that each device can be accessed with a different IP or host name. PRTG has no option like "use this address but only look for one or the other HA machine". If nothing else works except custom scripts, those can be used as sensor, however the script them must handle the login to the target as well, as scripts themselves are run on the PRTG probe.
