Scheduled Summary Report

Last modified on May 13, 2024

The Scheduled Summary Report (or Monitoring Summary) is a scheduled report that provides an overview of monitoring activity for the specified reporting period.

For one, several, or all monitors, shows the number of checks done, % availability, average response time, the number of errors and warnings occurred, and the number of alerts sent.

You will receive the report by email and can also view it in the Document Manager.

Report Data

Column descriptions

The report lists the selected monitors. The results of each monitor are grouped by locations. The overall summary is shown at the top of the report.

The report contains the following columns:

Column Description
Location The AlertSite location name.
# Checks The number of tests performed during the report period.
# Available The number of successful tests.
Available The percentage of successful tests.
Response Time The time it takes to download the page’s HTML source (without scripts, images and other external files). For details, see Response Time.
Fullpage Response Time The time it takes to retrieve the web page and all of the scripts, images, CSS files and other data used on the page. For details, see Full Page Response Time.
# Errors The number of times we encountered a problem.
# Warnings The number of generated warnings.
# Alerts The number of times alerts were sent.

In addition to the metrics above, the report for ServerAgent monitors (they monitor the private location health) contains the following:

Column Description
# OK The number of times your private location metrics were within the thresholds.
% OK # OK expressed as a percentage.
# Threshold Errors The number of times the metrics measured by ServerAgent exceeded the error threshold.
# Check-In Errors The number of times ServerAgent did not report to AlertSite in time. (For example, the connection was lost or ServerAgent was not running.)

Uptime measurements

If you have monitors with service level agreements configured, the report also contains Network Uptime and Application Uptime metrics:

  • Application Uptime is reduced by any correlated error, as a user would not have been able to complete their interaction.

  • Network Uptime is only reduced by network-related correlated errors attributed to the following statuses:

    • Status 1: TCP connect error.

    • Status 2: Timeout (can be network related).

    • Status 6: No response from server (can be network related).

    • Status 9: Ping error (site configured as pingable was not).

    • Status 51: DNS lookup error.

The monitor is up if any measurement is successful during a correlated measurement interval. Uptime statistics are especially useful in management and assurance of SLAs, since they can accurately reveal if the web service was at all available.
