    Possible to have down reasons in Solarwinds?

      So one of the things we want to start tracking is "why was this router down"

      For example. Last night I had a router down, I would like to be able to tag that (with checkbox or text field) something like "weather related".  I might have one that says "planned maintenance" etc. So when I go back and look at the events I can see not only was it down, but why it was down.

       

      Going one step further, then I would like to be able to create reports based on this, for example "% downtime last month due to weather related issues"  or downtime last month due to maintenance"

      Maybe this is possible now and I just haven't figured it out.

       

      Thanks!
