Device Uptime Alert

Idea ID 2703748

Device Uptime Alert

Create a function that would alert if a device is above or below a particular threshold for uptime.  

Scenarios would include Device uptime > 365 days

or Device uptime < 1 hr.  

 

This would serve to show devices that have been up for too long, or devices that rebooted due to a power outage and were back online or missed during a 5 min polling cycle.

I believe you can implement both of these with simple custom poller.

Vesko,

I understand that to be true, but it seems this is pretty basic functionality that should be available off the shelf.  This information is already fetched during a regular poll of the device, we just need to have an incident.

Dear Submitter,

Please generate the Node Availability report with the desired time period to get to nodes which are available [Top-N] or node which were not available [Bottom-N]. This should give you the list of devices as you described.

Let me know.

We know this is available via a report.  We're looking for an incident so that we can send a notification to our NOC.  What I failed to mention in the original post is we're trying to handle a scenario where our branch office experiences a brief power failure.  A cold start trap will never be received, and a polling cycle of 5 minutes is likely to miss the node down polling event because the network gear would have finished the reboot within 5 minutes.  We know we can create a custom poller to fetch the sysUpTime, but we're asking for an enhancement.  Does that help clarify?

@AkashDeep  how about defining management event "NodeRestarted" that is turned off by default and users can choose whether to enable it or not? Since NNMi internally is managing this event anyway, shouldn't be that difficult to implement.

BR,

Vesko.
