Analysis to detect offline machines

(imported topic written by JesperSD)


I was wondering if it was possible to create an analysis to detect if a machine is offline.

Specifically I have been trying to find a way to use Last Report Time. But it seems it is only measurable in the Console.

I can not get it to work in QnA.

I tried the property from the Console: apparent registration server time as universal string

I was thinking something like: Last Report Time < now + 900*second

The reason I want an analysis is to create a Web Report and detect if certain machines goes offline.

If anyone have any ideas as how to do it, with or without Last Report Time, I am listening.

I think what you want to do is to look at a custom report with some javascript to do this for you. Either that or just create a report with the filter set to:

Computer Last Report Time is greater than 900 seconds.

With the filter set, you could just search for the computer in question.

Thanks Martin, I had not noticed the filter with Last Report Time, it works great.
