Enterprise Performance Reports

Overview

GroundWork Reports are a set of predefined service level reports available for immediate report generation and visibility into IT service levels. These standard availability and status reports are viewable in GroundWork Monitor through the integrated BIRT Report Viewer. This page reviews the Enterprise Performance Reports including Host, Host Group, Host Group Top Five, Host Multi Variable, and Host Group Multi Variable. These reports are based on aggregated performance statistics collected on a daily basis in the Foundation database.

In the default configuration, performance data is consolidated daily and stored for one year. The nightly data consolidation process calculates the minimum, maximum and average value for the day; the underlying measurements are not kept. By default, the process_service_perfdata_file (file based performance handling) posts performance data to Foundation (same time as writing the RRD file). As long as performance counters are defined for checks the data will be available for EPR reports.

1.0 About Enterprise Performance Reports

1.1 Host EPR

The Host EPR charts long-term performance trends for performance data for a selected host. This report can help identify areas where additional capacity is needed due to steady increases in load or demand. It graphs the minimum, average and maximum values of a given performance metric over time.

1.2 Host Group EPR

The Host Group EPR charts long-term performance trends for performance data for a selected host group. This report can help identify areas where additional capacity is needed due to steady increases in load or demand. This chart graphs the minimum, average and maximum values of a given performance metric over time.

1.3 Host Group Top Five EPR

The Host Group Top Five EPR charts a selected performance indicator present in the selected host group.

1.4 Host Multi Variable EPR

The Host Multi Variable EPR charts a report with up to two individually selected hosts, units, and performance indicators present in the selected hosts.

1.5 Host Group Multi Variable EPR

The Host Group Multi Variable EPR charts long-term performance trends for performance data for a selected host group. This report can help identify areas where additional capacity is needed due to steady increases in load or demand. This chart charts a report with up to two individually selected host groups, units, and performance indicators present in the selected host groups.
