Period for sensors



Your Vote:



Hello, I don't want the sensors to issue a notification when a certain period of time has elapsed. Example: between 11:00 p.m. and 6:00 a.m. no notifications should be generated. Unfortunately, I couldn't find any setting for this, does it even exist?

Thanks very much.

You can configure PRTG to stop sending notifications during specific hours using the notification delivery schedule. Here are the steps to do so:

  • Log in to the PRTG web interface.
  • Go to the Setup in the main menu.
  • Click on the "Notification Templates" option.
  • Select the notification template that you want to modify, click on the "Schedule" within "Basic Settings" area. There you can select your schedule of choice If none of the predefined schedules work for you, you can create your own schedule in "Setup" > "Account Settings" > "Schedules". There you can set the start time to 23:00 and the end time to 6:00 to achieve your goal.

Now PRTG will only send notifications during the hours that you specified. Note that these changes will only apply to the selected notification template, so if you have multiple templates, you will need to repeat these steps for each one.

For more information please check the notification template manual here https://www.paessler.com/manuals/prtg/notifications_settings

Kind regards,
