Adding analysis charts

When you click Add Analysis Chart while editing a report set, the Edit Report Set > Analysis Chart page is displayed.

In the Definition section, configure how the analysis chart is displayed in the Report to which it is being added.

1
Give the chart a meaningful name in the Title box. This name appears in the caption of the Report when it is displayed.
2
The Time Frame box allows you to select the predefined time frame that the report utilizes. See also Time Frames in Which Metrics Are Viewed in the Foglight Experience Monitor Metric Reference Guide.

You can specify a threshold line that appears in red on the chart. This is useful if you have a predetermined reference point for a metric that you wish to make visually apparent on the chart.

1
In the Analysis Criteria section, select Choose Metric to display the Metrics List pop-up window. When a metric is chosen, its name appears in the Metric box.
4
For categories that support grouping, an additional Group box may appear. For example, the Site, Page, Hit, and Content Type categories are grouped by protocol: Web (HTTP) and Secure Web (HTTPS). In these cases, select one of the groups from the box.
5
The Additional Filter box allows you to further refine your analysis.
By default, no additional filter is enabled, but you may choose to use a Regular expression to restrict results (for example, select x from y where REGEXP “mysearch”), or use the Choose Resource option to find a specific resource whose relationship with the metric can be used to refine results (for example, if the metric is from the Page category, select a specific web site as a resource to restrict pages used in the Report to just that site).
6
When you have completed defining and modifying the contents of the analysis chart, click OK. Doing so returns you to the main Edit Report Set page, where you can continue to add other reports.

Adding an analysis table

When you click Add Analysis Table while editing a report set, the Edit Report Set > Analysis Table page is displayed.

In the Definition section, configure how the analysis table is displayed in the Report to which it is being added.

1
Give the report a meaningful name in the Title box. This name appears in the caption of the Report when it is displayed.
2
The Time Frame box allows you to select the predefined time frame that the report utilizes. See also Time Frames in Which Metrics Are Viewed in the Foglight Experience Monitor Metric Reference Guide.
1
In the Analysis Criteria section, click Choose Metric to display the Metric List pop-up window, where you can select the metric that serves as the criteria for the analysis table.
4
The value in the Label field for each item appears in the legend of the report, and by default, contains the same name as the metric you chose to include.
5
The Filter box allows you to specify the type of filter the report uses.
6
For categories that support grouping, an additional Group box may appear. For example, the Site, Page, Hit, and Content Type categories are grouped by protocol: Web (HTTP) and Secure Web (HTTPS). In these cases, select one of the groups from the box.

In some cases, additional filters allow you to refine the analysis further. If this is the case, the Additional Filter option appears. By default, no additional filter is enabled, but you may choose to use one of two additional filters: a regular expression, or a resource.

Use a Regular expression to restrict results (for example, select x from y where REGEXP “mysearch”) by specifying a filter that the system uses.

The alternative is to use the Choose Resource option to find a specific resource whose relationship with the metric can be used to refine results. For example, if the chosen metric is from the Page category, you can also select a specific Site in order to restrict the analysis to pages only found on that site.

Adding an alarm log

When you click Add Alarm Log at the bottom of the Edit Report Set page, you can create an alarm report that is included in the report set. The alarm report includes an alarm definition. Only alarms generated by the alarm definition will appear in the alarm log. Clicking the link takes you to the Edit Report Set > Alarm Log page.

3
In the Filter list, you can choose either All Categories to show alarms from all categories, or select a specific category to show alarms only for that category.
a
Click the Choose Resource link. The Resource list which corresponds to the Filter selection opens. Select the resource that you want to use to generate the report. For example, if Servers was selected as the Filter, the Resource list displays a list of all available servers that the appliance is monitoring.
4
In the Severity box, you can filter the resultant list of alarms by including only those of a certain level of severity.
5
Use the Time Period box to further filter the resultant alarm list by choosing a pre-defined time period during which triggered alarms are displayed.
6
In the Number of Alarms field, enter the number of alarms that are present in the report.

Adding a SOAP fault log

When you click Add SOAP Fault Log at the bottom of the Edit Report Set page, you are given the opportunity to create an alarm report that is included in the report set.

Use the Edit Report Set > Add SOAP Fault Log page to configure how alarms are displayed in your report set. Clicking the link takes you to the Edit Report Set > SOAP Fault Log page.

3
In the SOAP Server box you can search for faults that occurred on a specific SOAP server. SOAP Servers are identified by the destination IP address in SOAP message traffic.
4
In the SOAP Consumer box you can search for faults that occurred for a specific SOAP Consumer. SOAP Consumer provides metrics from the perspective of consumers of your SOAP based web services.
5
In the SOAP Operations box you can search for faults that occurred on a specific SOAP Operation. A SOAP operation is defined by the SOAP Action String in the HTTP header and the SOAP function name embedded in the SOAP body of a SOAP message.
6
Select an option from the Time Period box (1, 2, 4, 12, or 24 hours), or use the Time Range boxes to define start and end times, as well as the date of the log.
7
In the Number of Alarms field, enter the number of alarms that are present in the report.
