    Help with creating SolarWinds report.


      Hi All


      I have a group or a folder called Data. Inside Data I have a number of sub-groups and inside each sub-group I have a number of MSWindows physical servers. I need to create a report that will list all objects or servers residing inside these sub folders. I have created a report but the report doesn't drill inside the sub folder to give me the name of the servers! Would it be possible if someone can give a helping hand in getting this report generated please?


      Thank you all in advance

          Hi Tim,

          Could you provide more detail here with any screen shots of what you have done so far? Orion does not have a concept of folders so I am reading this as "Groups" You may also find custom properties useful when creating custom groups and reports.

              Hi Tony


              Yes you are correct. It is a Group that contains a number of sub groups,

              which in turn contains servers.


              I have managed to create a customer report where by I enumerate the

              contents of these sub-groups to get all the servers listed inside. I need

              to get all the peak CPU memory and network bandwidth utilisation. This is

              what I am working on atm


              Will keep you updated.

              the quickest way I could think to do this is to just write an SWQL query that selects the information you would like from the ContainMembers table. Something like below should be a good starting point




              SELECT ContainerID, MemberPrimaryID, MemberEntityType, Name, Status, MemberUri, MemberAncestorDisplayNames, MemberAncestorDetailsUrls, EntityDisplayName, EntityDisplayNamePlural, FullName, DetailsUrl
              FROM Orion.ContainerMembers
              WHERE ContainerID = "the ID of the containers you want to display"



              Turn that into a report and build it based off that
