HTTP Sensor Example

A common scenario for web monitoring is monitoring different websites:


If the Ping Sensor which monitors the gateway fails, both HTTP Sensors will also fail. To avoid the execution of multiple actions a dependency can be defined.
Here, HTTP Sensors only perform the requests if the last result of the Ping Sensor was successful.

This can be configured as follows:

Basic Settings


The name of the sensor.


The comment on the sensor.


The interval on which the sensor performs its checks.

Depends on

The sensor on which this sensor depends. If this sensor fails, the dependent sensor will not be executed. In this case the 'Ping Sensor'.


The state whether the sensor should be active or inactive.
