This section explains the report settings that can be configured in Applications Manager as well as data retention settings. To access this section, click the Report Settings link under the Admin tab. The section consists of the following inner tabs:

Reports Settings

Availability Reporting:

Treat Monitor Groups as Application Cluster (Availability based on default calculation) : By default, the Monitor Group availability will be shown as down (0%) if any one of the monitors in the Monitor Group is down.

Treat Monitor Groups as Services Group: By selecting this option, you can calculate Monitor Group availability based on the services availability. For eg., if there are 5 monitors in a Monitor Group and one monitor is down, Monitor Group availability is calculated as 80% available (one monitor - 20%).

Do not include Scheduled Maintenance and Unmanaged state in availability reporting: If you select this option, you can exclude scheduled maintenance and unmanaged state data from availability reports.

Attributes Reporting:

Plot attributes report with Bar chart: If you select this option, you can view the attributes report in the form of bar charts.

Plot attributes report with Line Graph: If you select this option, you can view the attributes report in the form of line graphs.

Show Plot shape in graph: By selecting this option, you can see the dots / blobs in the line graphs.

Moving Average: A simple moving average is the unweighted mean of the previous n data points. For example, a 10-day simple moving average of attribute value like CPU utilization is the mean of the previous 10 days' CPU Utilization value. By selecting this option, you can add moving average graph in the 7, 30 graphs of the various monitors.

Data Retention

To plot graphs and generate reports, Applications Manager collects data from the monitors at regular intervals. By default, Applications Manager aggregates the performance data into hourly data at the end of each hour. The hourly data thus calculated will be aggregated into daily data at the end of each day. The aggregated data will be used in graphs and reports.

Applications Manager allows you to maintain the database with the required data. By default, the detailed data will be maintained for six hours max, the hourly data for 90 days and the daily data for 365 days. After the specified period, the database will be cleaned up automatically.

To configure your own settings for database retention, follow the steps given below:

  • Click on the Admin tab
  • Under 'Reports Settings' section, click Data Retention tab.
  • Enter the number of days for which hourly statistics should be maintained.
  • Enter the number of days for which daily statistics should be maintained.
  • Enter the number of recent alarms that should be maintained in the alarm database.
  • Enter the number of days for which hourly statistics of disk and servlet attributes should be maintained. By default, it will be maintained for 30 days.
  • Enter the number of days for which the health history data should be maintained.
  • Enter the number of days for which the downtime history data should be maintained.
  • Enter the number of days for which the event count data should be maintained.
  • Save the changes.
Note: Unsolicited traps will be maintained for a default value of the last 5 Hours.
