Running and customizing quick reports

Quick reports are predefined, customizable reports. These reports include event data collected from your management servers as well as the client computers that communicate with those servers. Quick reports provide information on events specific to the settings you configure for the report. You can save the report settings so that you can run the same report at a later date, and you can print and save reports.

Quick reports are static; they provide information specific to the time frame you specify for the report. Alternately, you can monitor events in real time using the logs.

To run a quick report

  1. In the console, click Reports.

  2. On the Quick Reports tab, in the Report type list box, select the type of report that you want to run.

  3. In the Select a report list box, select the name of the report you want to run.

  4. Click Create Report.

To customize a quick report

  1. In the console, click Reports.

  2. On the Quick Reports tab, in the Report type list box, select the type of report that you want to customize.

  3. In the Select a report list box, select the name of the report you want to customize.

    For the Network Compliance Status report and the Compliance Status report, in the Status list box, select a saved filter configuration that you want to use, or leave the default filter.

    For the Top Risk Detections Correlation report, you can select values for the X-axis and Y-axis list boxes to specify how you want to view the report.

    For the Scan Statistics Histogram Scan report, you can select values for Bin width and Number of bins.

    For some reports, you can specify how to group the report results in the Group list box. For other reports, you can select a target in the Target field on which to filter report results.

  4. In the Use a saved filter list box, select a saved filter configuration that you want to use, or leave the default filter.

  5. Under What filter settings would you like to use?, in the Time range list box, select the time range for the report.

  6. If you select Set specific dates, then use the Start date and End date list boxes. These options set the time interval that you want to view information about.

    When you generate a Computer Status report and select Set specific dates, you specify that you want to see all entries that involve a computer that has not checked in with its server since the time you specify in the date and time fields.

  7. If you want to configure additional settings for the report, click Advanced Settings and set the options that you want.

    You can click Tell me more to see descriptions of the filter options in the context-sensitive help.

    Note:

    The filter option text boxes that accept wildcard characters and search for matches are not case-sensitive. The ASCII asterisk character is the only asterisk character that can be used as a wildcard character.

    You can save the report configuration settings if you think you will want to run this report again in the future.

  8. Click Create Report.
