Function documentationUsing Interactive Reporting

 

You can use Interactive Reporting to centrally display the development of the most important monitoring data for your monitored systems over time, to identify potential problems early, and to obtain an overview of the load, usage, availability, and performance of your systems, hosts, or databases.

The reports contain various periods, from the current day to the previous year, so you can see both the current, and the long-term development of the performance values. The values for each period are displayed in the appropriate level of detail.

The available reports are divided into the following four topic areas:

  • Availability

    These report contain information about the availability of the selected element, and also display information about planned downtimes.

  • Performance

    These reports contain information about the response times of the selected element.

  • Exceptions

    These reports contain information about the error in the selected element.

  • Capacity

    These reports contain information about the usage of the available capacity of the selected element. These reports therefore give you information about the capacity that is still free, for example, in the usage of different memory, or of the available CPUs.

  • Use

    These reports contain information about the usage of the selected element. You can find out, for example, how systems are used — both in terms of scope and topic areas.
