The Reports page customizes system metrics charts for data analysis.

ReportsList

TrueCommand users can create reports and share them with other TrueCommand users. We designed default reports that generate a basic system overview chart. Default reports show details like network traffic, storage, and the chosen system’s memory utilization.

Users must have access to the analyzed systems to view their reports.

Creating a Report

Click + CREATE REPORT to create a customizable report. Enter a report name and an optional description for the report.

Custom Charts

Most charts are already configured to report certain settings. To create a custom chart with custom settings, add a Custom Area Chart, Custom Bar Chart, or Custom Line Chart. Fill in these options when adding a custom chart:

  • General settings: Enter a Title, Subtitle (optional), Axis label (optional), Point size, Line size, Y min (optional), and Y max (optional) for the chart. Stack the values can be set to bring data points on the chart closer together. This setting is useful for charts that have many different data points at the max Y value.
  • Data sources: Add data sources to the chart by expanding a category and selecting appropriate sources. Multiple data sources can be added to one chart.
  • Summary: This step shows the all of the chosen values. Click SAVE to add the custom chart to the report or BACK to go back and change a setting or data source.

After adding charts to the report, click SAVE to make this report available for use.

Share Report

By default, the reports created by a user are available only to that user. To share a report with other users or teams, open the Configure menu > Reports screen and click Share. You can also share reports after generating them.

ReportsSharing

You can share reports with individual users or entire teams. Set either OWNER or SHARED WITH for the desired user. Users with the SHARED WITH status can view the report, while the OWNER status allows that user to edit the report. Clicking the OWNER or SHARED WITH text toggles every name in the list.

Viewing a System Report

Open the Configure menu > Reports page and click Generate report on the appropriate report. Click GENERATE to select the systems and time frame for the report.

ReportsGenerateDates

ReportsGenerateDatesSelect

A non-administrative user must have the appropriate permissions to view data from specific systems.

Clicking Confirm shows the saved charts from the report, populated with system data according to the selected amount of time.
