Version 6

    **REQUIRES ORION PLATFORM 2018.2 OR ABOVE**

     

    I had assembled this based on a much older SQL report, and then updated it to SWQL, then added some more intelligence to it so you can filter it based on the duration of the outage, search by the device names, and it has a method of letting you know when nodes have been down so long they aged out of the events table.

     

    Based on popular requests I figured it was time to put it out here to make it easier for the Thwackers to find and use.  This is intended to be used inside the Custom Query Resource


     

    select n.caption as [Device]
    -- shows the current status icon
    , '/Orion/images/StatusIcons/Small-' + n.StatusIcon AS [_IconFor_Device]
    -- makes a clickable link to the node details
    , n.DetailsUrl as [_linkfor_Device]
    -- shows the timestamp of the down event, if there is no timestamp then is says the event was greater than the number of days in your event retention settings
    , isnull(tostring(t2.[Down Event]),concat('Greater than ',(SELECT CurrentValue FROM Orion.Settings where settingid='SWNetPerfMon-Settings-Retain Events'),' days ago')) as [Down Event]
    -- shows the timestamp of the up event, unless the object is still down
    , isnull(tostring(t2.[Up Event]),'Still Down') as [Up Event]
    -- figures out the minutes between the down and up events, if the object is still down it counts from the down event to now, displays 99999 if we cannot accurately determine the original downtime, and 
    , isnull(MINUTEDIFF(t2.[Down Event], isnull(t2.[Up Event],GETUTCDATE())),99999) as Minutes
    
    
    from orion.nodes n

     -- Device nodeid used for our join

    WHERE StartTime.EventType = 1    
        
    ) t2 on n.NodeID = t2.nodeid
    
    
    -- this is how I catch nodes that are down but have aged out of the events table
    where (n.status = 2 or t2.nodeid is not null)
    
    
    -- If you want to filter the results to only show outages of a minimum duration uncomment the below line
    --and MINUTEDIFF(isnull(t2.[Down Event],(GETUTCDATE()-30)), isnull(t2.[Up Event],GETUTCDATE())) >  60

    --and n.Caption like '%${SEARCH_STRING}%'
