Overview

This page review how to generate data for Availability Reports after installation. Immediately following a GroundWork Monitor installation there will not be any data displayed for Availability Reports. The data for these reports are generated by the dashboard_data_load.pl and dashboard_avail_load.pl scripts which normally run once a day, at night, as a cron job. This is the expected behavior. These scripts can be executed manually to generate data earlier if required.

Steps
  1. The two scripts are located in directory:
    /usr/local/groundwork/core/reports/utils
  2. The cronjob is in the crontab for the user nagios. It can be viewed by typing the following command:
    crontab -l -u nagios
  3. It should show the following:
    50  23 * * *  /usr/local/groundwork/core/reports/utils/dashboard_data_load.pl >  /usr/local/groundwork/core/reports/utils/log/dashboard_data_load.log  2>&1 0 1 * * *  /usr/local/groundwork/core/reports/utils/dashboard_avail_load.pl >  /usr/local/groundwork/core/reports/utils/log/dashboard_avail_load.log  2>&1
