    Editing stats AFTER maintenance

    KrestenBuch

      Hi,

      I there any way i can edit the statistics for a monitor after it has occurred?

      I know i can disable the monitor in advance - but then i don't know exactly for how long the maintenance window will last..

          Hello Kresten,

          As ipMonitor's reports are used for SLA reporting, there is no way to edit the statistics.

          Sincerely,

              Hi,

              Thx for the answer - but how do I handle a service windows that maybe only took 2 out of the reserved 3 hours?

              Having my monitors turned off for the last hour also seems to be wrong and give misleading results.

                  A system that would allow us to report on planned vs. unplanned downtime would be excellent.  For example, IPMonitor would always maintain stats for actual availability - this could not be edited.  However, it could also maintain a table of "acceptable" outage timeframes that could be considered during the reporting process, where actual downtime would be exempted from being reported during a "planned downtime" report.

                  Perhaps this functionality is more geared towards Orion, but since we use both, I personally don't have an opinion on where it would live, just that it would be available to me.  :-)
