How do I calculate uptime % using data from PRTG?



I am trying to set up a way to calculate the percent of the time that my servers are available. This is being used to compare against a SLA as a measure of performance. I would like to be able to say that over a certain period, my servers were available 99.7% of the time (or whatever the value is).

So you want to calculate uptime accumulated for all sensors of a device?

I would like to be able to calculate how long my server has been available as a percentage of a total period of time. In other words, if I was looking at a 10 minute window, and my server was available for 9 of those minutes, my uptime percent would be 90%.

What is the best way to do this through PRTG?

You could use the reporting feature for that which has built in report templates for that :) Either use the the ping sensor only for it or add all sensors of a server to the report.

Further information about the reports can be found in the manual: https://www.paessler.com/manuals/prtg/reports

If that's not what you're after, let me know :)
