I need to monitor whether the device is available or not. And when it falls down then get this info ASAP into the XMC.
I wanted to use the Poll Status Only type of device.
But the default polling value is 12 hours and it is not possilbe to set less than 4 hours. If I understand well the device will stay green for 4 hours after it falls down (in the worst case). Due to it is not possible to use this feature to monitor devices and the feature seems unusable.
What is the range of Status Only Poll interval?
And is it possible to monitor state of Status Only device more frequently, e.g. every 5 minutes?

I don’t know either what could be a scenario for “Status only poll” if the lowest poll time is 4 hours. Something we should ask Extreme
Is there a limit about how many “Ping only” devices you can add?

Yes Dany, the primary reason is the License. There is possibility to use many times more Status only devices than the Ping only devices. So the status only would be a great solution for monitoring devices where we need to know just their availability.
But when we know only wheter the device was up 4 hours ago(in case of Status only devices) then it does not make me any sence.
Can you please show me the real use case for using the Status only device type?
