If I remember correctly, by default, WUG doesn't send out an alert until it has lost connectivity for 5 minutes. You should be able to change this.

Hi,

You can decrease the snmp query time. This way the application will report problems quickly.

If you look at a device properties:
1. There's a section/tab for monitoring. Look for a setting for how often a device is queried.
2. there's a section/tab for alerts. Look for a setting for how long the device is down before it alerts.

Note that I believe these can be set globally.
