    Reports for a specific time window?

    Brachus

      Currently our availability is configured for 24/7.

      Is there anyway to run a report that shows uptime only during business hours during the workweek for already existing monitors?

      Or will I need to create duplicate monitors with availability set to those specific times and run the reports against those?

          Hello Brachus,

          This is somewhat possible, however, it requires alot of work.  We plan to make this alot easier in a future version.

          To accomplish this you first create a report using the Add New Report Wizard.  Add the Monitors you need. 

          Once the report is created, you need to add 5 time selections:

          • Start At this week.  Go forward 1 day and 9 hours.  Include 8 hours.  (This will give you Monday 9-5)
          • Start At this week.  Go forward 2 days and 9 hours.  Include 8 hours.  (This will give you Tuesday 9-5)
          • Start At this week.  Go forward 3 days and 9 hours.  Include 8 hours.  (This will give you Wednesday 9-5)
          • Etc...

          Once the 5 Time selections are created, you then need to add Report Elements (Graphs, Tables, etc.) for each time selection.

          Hope this helps.

            Is it also possible to achieve that results by using filters?

            Our goal: Reports for Monday to Friday, 7 am to 5 pm.

            We tried to filter report results like by adding filters under the "filter results" tab:

            - records where Day of Week ist not equal to Saturday

            - records where Day of Week ist not equal to Sunday

            - records where Hour of Day (24 hour format) is greater than or equal to 8

            - records where Hour of Day (24 hour format) is less than or equal to 17

             

            If we now start the report we don't get any data. If we uncheck the filter "records where Hour of Day (24 hour format) is greater than or equal to 8" everything just works fine.

            Has anyone experienced that kinda problem?
