Coverage in a sensor report? (Report customization)

I'm currently using a top Uptime/Downtime report template to show my critical KPI sensors. It has Uptime %, etc for the sensors I want but I need the "coverage" column as well.

It lets me add "coverage" to the columns list without error in the "statstable" report tag. The problem is that the column is empty for all of the sensors. I've tried to pull in the "knowntime" column which is listed as a sensor column in the api docs but even that does not contain data.

Hi Phillip,

The "coverage" column can only be used for values, not devices or sensors. This is also described in the columns list of the API-Documentation (/api.htm?tabid=3). The "knowntime" column can only be used for the overall coverage of the sensor and not for specific time spans.
May I know what exact value you are trying to display?

Best regards.

I'm trying to show the not covered time (paused for maintenance maintenance) for a given report period per sensor. Preferably by coverage percentage.

If we run a "Table 1h" report for the same time period and for the exact subset of sensors, it shows the coverage percentage for the period in the average table (which is exactly what I want on the uptime table). It also shows the coverage percent for every 1 hr increment within the period, as well as a history at the bottom showing exactly when it was covered/not covered and for how long.

It's a simple calc which is definitely available for sensors during a specific time period. How do I get that calc into the uptime table?

Hi Phillip,

Unfortunately, this object is an object which is only available in the report engine, but it can't be created for each individual sensor in a table as it is not a column. Maybe the "uptimetime" column could help you as it displays only the time when the sensor was up.

Best regards.
