Hello together!

I can remember that it was planned for version 8 to suppress Ping-sensor-errors for switched-off-devices. Is this option implemented and I do not find it?

You can set Ping Sensors now (actually since quite some time) to automatically acknowledge an alarm on themselves in their Settings: http://abload.de/img/pingzso3a.png

Dear Bernhard,

this has not been implemented, but is still on the wishlist for a future version of PRTG (though no ETA available yet).

Best Regards.

Dear Bernhard,

What if there is a link failure or traffic got choked on the link, Not poping up PINGs is a bit bad idea from security point of view.
