Downtime Report



I need to create a report (or alternately a "map" displayed as an html page) which shows each sensor which has been down for the past 24 hours, it's current state (up,down,warn) and the total amount of time it has been down.

How can I achieve this either directly within PRTG, or outside of PRTG with the API?

I'm afraid this can only be done with the API. It would be quite a task there though, gathering historic data from all sensors and then checking which sensors were down, and only use the data from those to calculate the final numbers into a CSV or similar.

best regards.

Any updates on this?

We also want to get Daily Downtime Report from PRTG, this report should show all sensors that went down for the day along with their downtime uptime stats.

Are there any chance that this will be added on PRTG Features?

Hope you can consider this, this report would be very useful to administrators!

It's on the wishlist, but I can't give an ETA for this. Sorry. Please look into adapting a solution similar to the one in the followng KB-Article: "How can I create a report about the notifications, alarms and downtime of a sensor?"
