WAN utilization report

I need a daily report that will show us any circuit that has been at 80% utilization for over 20 minuets. Can any one help with this?

I am very new to solorwinds but have had some success with making custom reports but only with good instructions emoticons_happy.png.

I would also like an alert to go out when this occurs..


  • You can start with the attachment.  copy it an place it in your reports directory and open the file with the Orion Report Writer.

    Normal path for the report Directory = C:\Program Files (x86)\SolarWinds\Orion\Reports

    The report uses the Interface caption of "Wan" to filter the results.

    the report will give you a report that show the last 24 hours and if a interface goes over 80% on receive or Xmit.  if you can find a way to make it only report if it hits the 20 min mark, add it.

    you will need to take this report and run the report scheduler in order to get daily reports.

  • Thanks gunner2510 for your help!

    I added the report and modified it a bit for testing (lowered the utilization % and set the filter to filter on machine type contains Cisco)

    When i preview the report in Orion Report Writer I see exactly what i need but when i run the report from our orion web interface I get no results.

    Any idea what i'm missing?

  • That is a good one. Since it is the same report and the same database, I would look at an IIS issue. can you see other reports in the website?

  • all other reports seem to be working.

    for the new report I get the headers of the report but below that I get "No activity to report"

  • I fixed this issue by unchecking the "group historical data by day" box on the general tab.
