DECLARE @BeginDate datetime = '1/1/2018 00:00', @EndDate datetime = '10/10/2018 00:00';

-- the list of names that DPA has can be found running this query

-- SELECT * FROM ignite.CONV_VM

DECLARE @VMName varchar(400) = '<VM name>'

-- the Ignite metric data is stored in VM specific tables, and we need the VMID to get there

SELECT @VMID=ID FROM ignite.CONV_VM WHERE NAME = @VMName;

SELECT vm.NAME as "VM Name", e.EVENT_DATE, e.EVENT_DESCRIPTION

FROM ignite.CONV_EVENT e
