Reports

A Report is a configurable object that enables users to receive summarized data on-demand or on a scheduled frequency. Reports typically output to an HTML file or email.

How it works:

Once a report has been created, computers, devices and/or hosts must be assigned. Once hosts are assigned, the Explorer View adds a Report Node under the assigned host. Every minute at the top of the minute Server Manager checks to see if a report should be executed. If a report is scheduled to execute, Server Manager creates a new task then executes the report, fires Actions, saves the results to the history database and finally, calculates and saves the next execution time.

To create a report:

  • From the Menu Bar select File | New. The Create New Object View displays.
  • From the Create New Object View, expand Reports.
  • Navigate through the tree to find the type of report you would like to create then click the report type. The Properties View displays.
    Information Unlicensed report types appear in gray text. If you would like to create a report that is not currently licensed, please contact Corner Bowl Software to upgrade your license.
  • Configure the Report Properties.
  • When applicable, assign target hosts, host groups, and report groups.
  • When you have finished configuring the report, click the OK button to save.

To assign a report to computers, devices and hosts:

  • From the Explorer View, navigate to the report you want to assign a host.
  • Right-click and select Assign | Computer, Device or Host. The Select Multiple Computers, Devices and Hosts dialog displays.
  • Check the computers to assign then click OK.

Sample Reports

Server Manager includes sample Reports of which several are initially assigned to the localhost. The sample Reports can be modified and assigned to other computers as necessary. To view the sample Reports, from the Explorer View, expand the Reports node then select Sample Reports.
