To view a report, first select the type of report you want to see in the Reports panel. If the report has been scheduled, Operations Manager generates copies at regular intervals. You can view a copy of a scheduled report, or you can view an up-to-the-minute report — a report based on the current state of your environment.
You can choose to view the report in PDF or XSLS format. PDF reports display in a browser window, and the browser downloads XSLS reports to your local machine.
Viewing an Up-To-The-Minute Report
To view a current report, select the report type in the Reports panel, and click Generate Now.
Make the settings you want in the Generate Report dialog box, and click Apply:
- ScopeOpen the Scope dialog box and choose a group to set the report’s scope.
- FormatChoose PDF or XSLX
- Number of Days BackThis setting determines how much historical data to include in the report.
- Hide CPU and Storage ChartsHiding the charts results in a tabular report.
NOTE: If the Scope field is in the dialog box, this report requires a scope. You must set a scope before you can click the Apply button.
Viewing Scheduled Reports
When you schedule a report, Operations Manager generates the report at regular intervals and saves it on the server. When you select a report type in the Reports pane, the Generate/View Report pane updates to show a range of saved reports for the active date range (see the Start and End fields). If no reports appear in the list, that means the report was not scheduled during the time of the active date range.
You can set the date range that you want, and update the list — subsequent choices in the Reportspane will reflect the new date range.
The list of generated reports shows the report’s date and filename. You can choose to get a PDF or XSLS version of the report.
