h4. 1.2 Host Group Status Report

This report displays two pie charts representing Host Group(s) Service Status and Host Group(s) Host Status. Totals for each section represent the number of times each (or all) Host Group Service or Host Group Host is in a particular state. For Host Group Service Status, states include Critical, OK, Pending, Unknown, and Warning. For Host Group Host Status states include Down, Pending, Unreachable, and Up. The Host Group Service Status and Host Group Host Status lists are organized by Host Group and presents the number of Services and Hosts in each state.
* The first section of the report contains two pie charts showing Host Group Service Status and Host Group Host Status. The counts depicted in the pie chart show status count totals for the Host Group(s) identified with the Host Group report parameter.
* The second section of the report contains two lists showing a breakdown of Service status and Host status counts for each Host Group specified in the report. All Services and Hosts are listed in alphabetical order. Also, each Service and Host state is listed in alphabetical order. If any Service for a particular Host Group is in the CRITICAL state this count will be highlighted in red. And, if any Host for a particular Host Group is in the DOWN state the count will be highlighted in red.
* This report displays state information for each Service and Host related to the specified Host Group or for all Host Groups if no Host Group is selected.
* Host Group Status Report Parameters
** Host Group Name: The Host Group name parameter allows you to generate the Host Group status report for a particular Host Group. All Host Groups registered with the GW system are listed in the drop-down box. You can select a specific Host Group or leave it blank to generate the report for all Host Groups in the system.
{Note}Host Group Service status and Host Group Host status counts are a sum of each distinct Service and status related to the Host Group. This means that if a Service and/or Host belongs to multiple Host Groups its status is not included twice in the counts presented in the pie charts. The data for this report comes from the Foundation Web Services.{Note}
