We have a scenario where we want to alert an on-call engineer if a device goes down, but not alarm on all child objects as it’s very noisy. However we still want to make them aware of the severity of the single device being down.
LibreNMS <-> Router 1 <-> Router 2 <-> Router 3 <-> Router 4
At the moment, device dependencies has 1 as parent of 2, 2 as parent of 3, 3 as parent of 4.
If Router 1 goes down, so will the links towards 2, 3 and 4. But the on-call person will only get a single alert for a single router.
Is there any way to put in the alert when Router 1 goes down.
“Router 1 is offline, 3 child alerts suppressed.” or “Router 1 is down which is affecting 3 child devices” - something along those lines?
I’m not sure if this type of feature exists yet.
Thanks in advance
