Active Monitor Availability

Active Monitor Availability report provides a comprehensive set of states and measurements that account for the monitor's absolute availability or "uptime" for each active monitor associated with one or more devices. Active Monitor Availability report displays complete accounting information for each Active Monitor.

The sum of state categories for a given monitor reflect 100% of observed device activity over a given time interval. These reporting metrics reveal service level and uptime compliance at a glance.

When the report is filtered to present data for a specific device and active monitor, a chart representing monitor availability over time for the selected interval is also displayed.

Note: Start date and time are only displayed when a single device is selected.

Fraction of downtime for the current date range.
