A suggestion I have, would be to make pings or alerts dependent on other checks. For instance I have pings set to check 19 locaions, and an additional check against my ISP's gateway IP. If the gateway is down, EVERYTHING will show down (obviously)... i know this, but if the gateway goes down i get 20 emails that everything is down. It would be nice to be able to say the other 19 checks depend on the gateway check, and if it is down either don' bother checking the others, or don't alert on the others.

Hi ccoho,

Thanks for the suggestion - we appreciate it!

This is definitely an interesting idea, and I can see how a feature like this could prove useful for situations like the one you've outlined here. I'll get an enhancement request logged for this, and make sure it gets in front of our team for review.

Best wishes,
