Custom criteria of final monitoring status (by number of monitoring agent)

Good Day,

Monitoring websites via multiple monitoring location (agent) is quite common.

However, alert might required(based on certain percentage) ,even though not "all" of the monitoring location detection is "down/fail".

eg: 3 out of 6 agent detected is fail. need to notify administrator.

I can't find any of the setting in anturis. If there is any, please let me know.


Could you please describe a particular example case when you don't need a fault to be confirmed from all the locations? Probably there will be a better solution for your case.

I would have 5 different probe(From various location-worldwide). If 3 or more location/probe have fault, I would need the technical team to start investigate instead of waiting all 5  location/probe have issue

Please let me know if any solution.

If, say, there is a server goes down then regardless of the number of locations you will get alert after similar period of time. This period of time approx equals to = polling period multiply number of subsequent failures from status rule tab. Ex:

Polling period = 3 min

Number of subsequent failures = 2

=> You will get an alert after 4-7 min after crash, whether you have 1 location or 6.

So if your concern is the time to reaction then I'd rather suggest you just decrease the polling period.

P.S. currently we need just 2 locations to confirm failure, but we plan to increase it in future.
