Reports

Predefined report templates are provided for the Integration. You can access them from the Reports tab and use them as-is or modify them to meet your needs. You can also create various report types related to integration entities.

For example, you might want to create a line chart that displays the loss of signal count for a user‐specified node.

After a report is saved, the report can be persistently viewed from the Dashboard tab in VirtualWisdom.

For more information, see “Reports” in the VirtualWisdom User Guide.

The following predefined reports are provided for this Integration and can be viewed in the VirtualWisdom Dashboard.

Report

Description

Template - SVC Cluster Summary

High-level summary of an SVC cluster

Template - SVC Health and Utilization Overview

Shows open case status of SVC Clusters/Nodes, as well as link events, and utilization metrics for SVC Clusters

Template - SVC Performance and Credit Starvation Comparison

Compares buffer credit, workload, processing, and response time data for SVC clusters

Template - SVC Port and Cache Performance

Compares the utilization of an SVC to its response time (internal and external to the SVC) and cache health

Template - SVC Troubleshooting

Shows worst performers from a response time, buffer credit, and processing perspective for SVC Clusters, their internal components, and virtualized storage

You can also create various report types related to integration entities and view those reports in the dashboard.

For example, you might want to create a line chart that displays the loss of signal count for a user-specified SVC node. Once it’s saved, the report can be persistently viewed in the dashboard. For more information, see Chapter 6 “Reports” in the VirtualWisdom User Guide.

The following table lists the metrics associated with each SVC report type:
