Foglight Resource Optimizer reports

Several report templates are available with Foglight Resource Optimizer, and together they provide a detailed analysis of the changes made in your environment over time.

Each report template uses report parameters to define the content of the report. Use a template’s default report parameters to quickly generate or schedule a report or optionally change the report parameters to customize the report to better meet your requirements.

The following tables contains an alphabetical list of the Foglight Resource Optimizer reports. They also provide a brief description of the report and the report parameters used to define the content. Report parameters marked with an asterisk (*) are required and you must specify this parameter before the report can be generated.

NOTE: If you are using the Templates by Module tab on the Run Report wizard, click the expansion box to the left of the:
