Virtual Machines. Uptime Statistics

This report provides an overview of VMs uptime, including VMs with lowest and highest uptime values.

Description

The Virtual Machines. Uptime Statistics reportis a linked report that is based on the Veeam State Summary Report from the Veeam Report Library. The report provides statistics for the predefined monitor. The report is limited to only one time interval and pre-defined object type (Virtual Machine).

Note

The report shows uptime statistics only for VMs with Hyper-V Integration Services installed. If Hyper-V Integration Services are not installed, then the power state of the VM will be tracked.

Parameters

Data Aggregation: defines whether the data in the report will be aggregated to Hourly or Daily values.

Note

If you use daily aggregation, mind that with default data grooming and aggregation settings, the current date may not have a datapoint in the data warehouse. In this case, the object will be marked 'Unmonitored' for the current day, which means the object will have downtime. For more accurate reporting results, you can exclude the current day from the reporting period.

Date/time Selection: defines a time period to analyze in the report.

Scope: defines a list of Groups or Objects to include in the report (by default, the Veeam Hyper-V Virtual Machines Group is selected). The Add Group option returns a group and all objects that a group contains (with all performance counter instances). The Add Object option returns only the selected object.

Unhealthy States: defines what VM states you consider unhealthy: Critical, Warning, Unmonitored, Monitor disabled, Monitoring unavailable, Unplanned maintenance or Planned maintenance (by default, only Critical and Unmonitored states are selected).

SLO (%): defines a service level objective. The SLO sets a time period (in percent against the reporting period) when selected VMs must be in a healthy state (that is, in the state that is not marked as unhealthy).

Sort By: defines how data will be sorted in the report (by Virtual Machine Name, Up Time or Down Time).

Sort Direction: defines the sorting order for results in the report table (Ascending or Descending).

Sample Usage

Identify VMs whose uptime was less than 85% during the previous week.

Instructions:

  1. Open the Virtual Machines. Uptime Statistics report.
  2. From the From list, select Previous Week > Monday. From the To list, select Previous Week > Friday.
  3. Leave the Scope section without changes.
  4. In the Unhealthy States list, choose states that you consider unhealthy (for example, Critical, Warning and Unmonitored).
  5. In the SLO (%) field, enter 85.
  6. From the Sort By list, select Virtual Machine Name.
  7. From the Sort Direction list, select Ascending.
  8. Click Run to view the report.

Report Output

The report will show uptime and downtime statistics for a list of virtual machines.

The green graph on the chart will represent healthy states, the red graph will represent unhealthy states. The SLO bar will be highlighted pink or grey, according to the following rule:

  • Grey: The percentage of time when the VM was in a healthy state is above the SLO (%). That is, the VM was in a healthy state more than 85% of time during the reporting period.
  • Pink: The percentage of time when the VM was in a healthy state is below the SLO (%). That is, the VM was in an unhealthy state less than 85% of time during the reporting period.

Сlick the SLO bars to drill down to the Veeam State Details Report and view uptime details for the VM for the week.

I want to report a typo

There is a misspelling right here:

 

I want to let the Veeam Documentation Team know about that.
