    Filtering alerts based on other node statuses

      I ask another question here concerning dependencies, but I thought I would start another thread attempting the same thing but using Alert Suppression.

       

      We have hundreds of sites all over the country that we are monitoring in NPM.  Each site we are monitoring their router, switch and server.  The problem is, when the router goes down we get three Node Down alerts, one for the router, the switch, and server.  I could use dependencies and there is a good solution for that on the other thread, but I am nervous about creating hundreds (x2) dependencies.  It seems like it'll be a pain to maintain later and make it a mess when including other dependencies.:

       

      So the question:  Is there a way to do this using Alert Suppression?
