Generate and view reports

Reports are generated from the Report Designs that are under the Reports tree of the Monitoring Configuration view.

When you generate a report, the Management Server sends the task to all Log Servers that are not excluded from processing. The task’s progress and possible errors are shown next to the task under the selected Report Design.

Each Log Server processes the task and returns the summary data for each Report Section. The Management Server merges the data from the Log Servers into one report. If one of the selected Log Servers cannot be contacted for any reason, the execution of the task is delayed until the Log Server becomes available.
