LEM Report on Severity >= 6

I am not having any luck finding how to create a custom report or find a report in the 700 canned reports that just does a severity report. Now maybe I missed it but can someone help me locate a report that just reports on Severity of 5 or 6 and greater that LEM has logged.

I would like a daily report that just includes those severities to meet a PCI compliance audit requirment.


Thanks for any help in advance.

The easiest way to do what you want is to take an existing report, filter it, and then save that as a custom report. In this case, I'd use the "Console - Overview" report.

  1. Select the Console - Overview report in the list
  2. Click Run and pick a sample date range (can be short, but ideally would have severity 5+ things in it so you could search)
  3. Click Select Expert and add your Severity >=5 criteria
    1. Click New...
    2. Choose genericalert.severity
    3. Choose "is greater than or equal to" and fill in or select 5
    4. Click OK
  4. Click Export Report
  5. Choose Crystal Reports (RPT) and Disk file, then click OK
  6. Navigate to Program Files (x86 if 64-bit)\SolarWinds Log and Event Manager Reports\CustomReports
  7. Save your report there as an RPT

To run the pre-filtered report:

  1. Go back to Settings
  2. Click Category > Custom Reports on the right
  3. Hit the "refresh report list" button on the top in the Quick Launch, or hit F5
  4. Click your Report (it'll be called "Console - Overview" and will show the file path from step 7 above)
  5. Click Run

Hope that helps.
