h1. Generating 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.

The two scripts are located in directory:
{noformat}/usr/local/groundwork/core/reports/utils{noformat}
The cronjob is in the crontab for the user {{*nagios*}}. It can be viewed by typing the following command:
{noformat}crontab -l -u nagios{noformat}
It should show the following:
{noformat}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{noformat}
