    Custom Reports


      I would like to see an outage report that lists out the top 10 down MPLS sites for the month and possibly the total down time for each node on the top ten list for that month as well.

          You could use the 'Top 25 Percent Down - Last Month' report and modify it to show only the top 10 records and filter only your MPLS sites. However, I'm not sure how to retrieve total down time on a node.

              Thanks! that seemed to show me what I want to see for the most part. the only thing I can't figure out how to change in the report is to show total down time instead of percent down. Idealy I would like to see the total hours/minutes the site was down last month. Maybe that requires an advanced SQL report?

                Just to add, you would probably need to create a custom property for the type of WAN circuit (Frame-Relay, MPLS, T1, DS3..etc). Then filter based on that custom property.

                    Excellent point for anyone else trying to filter out specific criteria...I did that previous to this post and that is what I'm filtering on for this report.

                        There's a report in Contect Exchange with custom SQL for duration which is a good start if you're into SQL:

                        Outage Duration Last Month

                            DATEDIFF(Mi, StartTime.EventTime,
                            (SELECT TOP 1
                                FROM Events AS Endtime
                                WHERE EndTime.EventTime > StartTime.EventTime AND EndTime.EventType = 5
                                    AND EndTime.NetObjectType = 'N'
                                    AND EndTime.NetworkNode = StartTime.NetworkNode
                                ORDER BY EndTime.EventTime)) AS OutageDurationInMinutes

                        FROM Events StartTime INNER JOIN Nodes ON StartTime.NetworkNode = Nodes.NodeID
                        WHERE (StartTime.EventType = 1) AND (StartTime.NetObjectType = 'N') AND
                        eventtime between dateadd(month, -1, getdate()) and getdate()
                        ORDER BY Nodes.Caption ASC
