Hi Guys,

Pretty new to NimBus so I hope I'm not making too much of a fool out of myself!

To avoid alerting everytime a ping fails to a network device (Cisco) I would like to create a 'Super' Alert which is only kicked off once both Ping Fails and SNMP Queries have consisently failed over a time frame (e.g. 5 mins)

As we use Auto-Ticketing here I also need to make sure that the alerts building up to the 'super' alarm  are made invisible and only the 'super' alarm is actually raised in the Alert screen.

Hope that makes sense!
