In order to accomplish this, simply group the Devices that share the same subnet and then add the Ping Monitor to the router as a Dependency to the group. As a result, if any Monitors fail within the Devices contained in this Group, the status of the Ping Monitor will be verified before any Alerts/Actions are triggered.
Note: Don't forget to set the Ping Monitor to the Router to test twice as often as the Monitors. Otherwise, some Monitors could fail before the Ping Monitor.
Hope this helps,

Can you post a reference to this procedure? I haven't found the process after looking in the Orion Admin guide. I would like to set all my nodes in a subnet with a dependency on the router so that they do not all alert when the router is down.
The above procedure refers to ipMonitor, is that what you're using?
