New/Properties: Watch Item : Dependencies
The "Dependencies" tab displays provides configuration of dependent Watch Items. One is assigning Watch Items that the current Watch Item is dependent on. For example, if the properties for a Watch Item named "Homepage" is displayed, then "Homepage" is dependent on the selected Watch Items.
Dependencies are useful for setting up complex relationships between multiple items being monitored. For example, one may want all Watch Items to be suspended if the DNS server stops responding, in order to prevent any false alarms from being triggered.
