Question/Issue There are two types of status, "Warning" and "Down" Each can be configured based on "%" and "#" How does this work? 
Answer/Solution The status level is used for setting thresholds for failure. This is primarily used to test uptime levels.

For instance, if you need to ensure that your site has 95% uptime, you should set the warning level to a value less than 5% so that you will be warned when the 5% failure failure rate is being approached. Also, you would set the DOWN level to 5% to be informed when the 5% failure margin is reached.

If you need want to set the threshold to an absolute number of failures, change the indicator from % to # and set the number of failures for the warning and down levels.
