How do I review sensors (down state 8 hours)



Hi All,

In our monitoring setup we know that some sensors goes in down state while the ops team is off-duty. These sensor might be down for 5 min, and we only notify on-call after 15 min.

I what to review all sensors that have transitioned to down state in an 12 hour window, to look for periodic errors.

We did have a nexus switch doing random stuff every 10-11 hour for a brief period. The ops team didn't catch the error, and only when the switch went into a boot loop we noticed :)

Kind regards,

I guess the best way is to check the notification logs where you can see all notification which has been triggered. These logs can be found under Logs | System Events | Notification Related.

Well it sort of give me an overview but it hard to filter the log for 8 - 12 hours, when the only filter option is time. I really needed that option to filter by state = down

Currently we don't offer a filter for hours.
