Foglight Evolve 6.3.0 - User Guide

Determine if the state of a host impacts your services

If one of your hosts is in a state other than Normal (), use the impacted services popup to view which of your services that host might impact. This popup helps you establish whether critical services are affected by problems with your hosts and decide if immediate action is necessary to resolve these problems.



Reporting on Your Enterprise

Reports are a convenient way to share data about your monitored environment with others in your organization. The Reports dashboard is your starting point for working with reports. Use it to create and schedule reports and to access the Manage Reports dashboard. You can create:

The Report Manager role allows users to schedule as well as generate the reports for which they have role access. It is different from the Operator role, for example, in that users granted the Operator role can generate reports but cannot schedule them. With the Report Manager role, users cannot create new report templates through the Definitions editor or create reports using the drag and drop feature initiated from the action panel. The Advanced Operator role grants users access to all report functionality.

The Reports dashboard also provides at-a-glance reporting details. It displays the number of report templates available to you, the number of scheduled reports, and information about upcoming scheduled reports and recently generated reports.

A Reports menu is located at the top-right corner of each dashboard. From this menu, you can quickly create a new report, run a report, and manage reports. You can access the same menu from the General tab on the action panel by expanding Other Actions and clicking Reports.

Running a Report

Foglight contains a number of pre-defined report templates. Each template serves a particular purpose, but many templates have the same expected inputs. The values you specify for these inputs define the content of the report.

Use a template as-is to quickly generate or schedule a report, or change the report input values to meet specific requirements.

Running a Report

Click Run a Report on the Reports dashboard to select and generate a report immediately (in the PDF format, for example) using the Create Report wizard. If you have the Manager Report role or the Advanced Operator’s role, you can also schedule a report from this wizard. See Online-Only Topics for details about using this wizard.
