Down / Up Reporting showing device names and time/dates



Following recent multiple system outages, it would be a great help to produce a report showing the date/time, device name and state for all down/up activities over a given time period.

Ideally this would be a new report template similar to the existing "Top 100 Downtime" report, so allowing the top level selection, but showing the date and time of each device state changes, with an option to sort either by date/time or device name.

eg - Date sorted.

Date/Time               Device Name     State
2019-09-23 12:21     Router1            Down
2019-09-23 12:23     Router1            Up
2019-09-23 12:24     Router6            Down
2019-09-23 12:24     Server2            Down
2019-09-23 12:24     Server9            Down
2019-09-23 12:27     Server2            Up
2019-09-23 12:27     Server9            Up

Another option would be on the "Log > Status Changes > Down/Up&Down" filter, and add the option to filter by Object Type, and export to CSV / Excel.

Hello Tim,

Thanks for your feedback regarding the reporting of PRTG. I'm afraid that adding new templates for reports is not (yet) on our Road-Map. One of our partners offers an additional SLA-Monitoring module which comes with a free testing phase. Maybe the SLA Plugin is something for you for the moment?

Note: The SLA Plugin from Corp IT has been deprecated. If you would like to explore enhanced SLA reporting options, check out the PRTG SLA Reporter, a PRTG extension. A free trial is available from the Paessler website.

Kind regards,
Felix Saure, Tech Support Team
