Availability Report for multiple devices

Hi everyone,

I try to set up a report for Ping availability of different devices. My problem is, that I need not only the TOP 100 devices/sensors but all matching a specific tag. The tagging and filtering is no problem but i have no idea how to get a availability report of 300 devices over half a year time period.

In my case my boss needs a report of all servers (seperated by virtuel and physical) availability (ping is enough) every half year. Every server has a tag so I can filter that, but in reports there is only a TOP 100 template.

Thanks for your help.

Regards, Jens

Use a library and include all of the devices with that TAG, then build the report from the library.

Thanks for your tip with adding a library, but could you give me a short guide how to build a report from that library and how to do a availability report with more then 100 devices. I have no idea how to do that.

Hi Jens,

After assigning the tags to the objects, you can open the settings of your report and choose Add Sensors by Tags.

Hi Felix, thank you for your help but I think you misunderstood something. I need an availabilty report that is capable of showing more then 100 devices / sensors. So which report should I open?

Hello Jens,

I guess you refer to the template Top 100 Uptime/Downtime (based on uptime percent)?

Hi Felix, ok, so as I thought. Which other template could I use to get an availabilty report? Or what else can I do, to reach my goal of getting a percentage of uptime/downtime of more then 100 devices? This feature is age-old in nagios.

Hello Jens,

Please excuse me, actually it is possible to create a report for more than 100 devices. For the Top 100 Uptime Percent report, the

C:\Program Files (x86)\PRTG Network Monitor\webroot\reporttemplates\details\Stats Loop 100 Up Pct.htm

needs to be adjusted. Change the two count="100" values to create a report with more devices. I do not recommend to change this file directly, but to create a new report, this is described here.

I also edited my answer above so that other customers reading this article do not get confused. If you encounter any issues while creating the new template, please let me know.

Best regards, Felix

Thanks for this tip. Now it works great. Only improvement that i wish to find in the feature is, that I get an overall percentage of downtime within the report. But my question is answered so thanks again.
