WebinarUpcoming Webinar: Know What’s Changed – with NEW Server Configuration Monitor

Join SolarWinds VP of product management Brandon Shopp to discover how the new SolarWinds® Server Configuration Monitor is designed to help you.

In this case, the node in question was part of a dependency. In the events table, there was a node in the same dependency that also went down at the same. This meant that the node in question was not marked as 'down', but as 'unreachable'. Because the node is marked as 'unreachable', it does not count as an actual outage and the result is that you see a gap in data in the chart. However, the node was not actually 'down' so it's availability is still marked at 100%.
