I need a report that shows all the audits done on a group of vms, such as when the resizeup and resizedown steps were taken on the group.
The Optimize Summary dashboard has an actions executed log that can be generated or scheduled to go out as a report. This log records what actions were done at what time, and by which user (or automatically by the system). You can scope down to the group or cluster of VMs that you want to see, and save that scope as a custom dashboard:
From here, you can generate this custom dashboard as an ad-hoc report, or even save it to be scheduled to go out automatically:
Does that help?
Hey Todd -
I think the quickest way to get the info you need is to create a group for the VMs you are interested in: Policy > Group Management > Add Group
From there, go back to the Optimize Summary view on the main Dashboards View and scope to that group of VMs. Once you do that you will see the Audit Log for those VMs in the right-hand corner:
Ryan and Justin have some great recommendations here - both are great ways to get the info you want to see!
I wanted to provide my take as this is a question that comes up frequently! There's one more way to do this, so I figured I'd run through another scenario.
Assuming you already created the group (How to Create Custom Groups (prior to v5.4) ) a different way to do this below. I'd love to set up a time to do this with you!
First we want to create a new custom dashboard which can be found below. I'm working of VMTurbo 5.2 update 3. ( This will be similar for versions 5.1 and up. Let us know what version you are on. If you are on 4.7 or earlier and looking to update, it is suggested to do this with support - which we can help to set up a session for!)
After clicking the Create Custom Dashboard symbol you will be prompted to select a "widget". In this case we want to select "Audit Log" as this will tell us everything that has done.
From the Audit log you will be asked to "Scope" or select what you want VMTurbo to view. You will want to go to "My Groups" as that is where your group will be.
You want to scroll down and select that group you created.
You will then see a box of all the actions that VMTurbo has taken for that group. The box may initially be empty but on the bottom you can scroll back to 60 days.
You will then want to save that dashboard and will be prompted to name it.
From there you will want to save this dashboard as a report. You'll be prompted to save and name it.
If you navigate to our Reports page, you will then see your named Report. I named mine "Audit Log SQL" you can see it below.
Now if you select "Generate Now" and select those start and end dates, you can see the actions VMTurbo took over that time period. Make sure you have pop ups enabled so the PDF can be generated (you can also have it be an Excel file)
Now if you want this to be generated and emailed on a regular basis you could add it to your schedule and have it emailed out to you. Select the Add button.
Then Select the time period you'd like the report to be sent out - put your email in, and then apply! And you are good to go!
Hoping our suggestions help!
Please let me know if I can set up a one on one session to show you this!
