How to reduce the number of alerts to a single alert per health state?

We use our PRTG alerts to generate help desk tickets. Currently when a server is rebooted we will recieve multiple alerts (for ping, services, etc) with each one generating a ticket.

We would like to minimize the number of alerts to a single alert per health state, I.E. if ping and /or a service is down send a single message indicating a list of issues detected.

alerts minimize state

Hello,

with which version of PRTG are you working? Have you tried the new notification-summing-mechanism in PRTG 8 yet?

Best Regards.

Upgrading to version 8 didn't help. I need to set it up so that I only get one alert for a computer and not once for each wmi thing I am monitoring for that PC!
