[smokeping-users] Suppress notification of failure for downstream devices if upstream device is down

Is there a way to set alerts and/or notification so that downstream
devices that are monitored do not trigger an alarm if an upstream device
is not responding?

For instance, I monitor sites that are connected via a router and also
the devices beyond that router. If I can't ping the router then I know I
won't be able to reach the devices on the other side either. Right now,
if said router fails, I get my email box full of notifications. I would
like to get notified that an upstream device failed and that is all.

However, I don't want to exclude the downstream devices from
notification if indeed they are down when the upstream device is not.

Is anything like this available in Smokeping?

Also, is there a quick way to see just currently down/not responding
devices at-a-glance without having to go through each menu item?
