Administer statistics




I am trying to get administer statistics from our PRTG Installations.

- How long does it take from a down-alarm to a acknowledged sensor.

- How long does it take from a acknowledged sensor to OK/Warning

- Are there sensors, which hops from green to red back to green on a daily or weekly base?

Tanks a lot

Hi Samuel,

We don't have exactly that report, but something similar: click You'd need to modify it accordingly to also give you the time from acknowledged to up. As of now, it only tracks the time from down to up. The last point is somewhat difficult to report on. You'd need to get all switches between up and down and then get all that happen between a certain timespan, like lordmilko mentioned in the Gist:

From PrtgAPI 0.9.0 you can specify -IgnoreSSL to Connect-PrtgServer; this allows you to ignore SSL validation errors without having to manually paste in a whole bunch of code to ignore invalid
certificates yourself! In addition, you can even specify a -Status to Get-ObjectLog to filter against one or more statuses server side! This is really useful when trying to track down rare events that occur within a large timespan
