    Zone isolation: Router / firewall cutoff point

    GarethHassall

      Hi All,
      In a situation where I have a pair of routers with 8 monitored hosts on the remote subnet, if one of the routers goes down, I'm going to get 8 (or 9) emails & SMS's. In an incident recently, where our Telecomms provider had a fault, the line went down 6 times in the space of an hour: 6x8 downs + 6x8 ups = 96 emails AND 96 SMS's!

      Is there any way in Orion to set dependancies, whereby if the router fails, any 'dependent' hosts do not generate alerts, only the primary device?

      My hip is still buzzing. . . .

      Thanks,

      Gareth.
