A brief video outlining how to make device reports using the reporting wizard.
This video will show you how to add a devices report attachment to one of your reports. This is useful for inventory management for communicating which devices make up or are on a given dashboard, and a few other use cases that should soon become fairly apparent as we go through the work though.
You can first decide whether you wanted to run this against a device or device group, device group being the more common. In this scenario, I will just select a single device group, my Cisco group, but you could perceivable select as many groups as you'd like. You can then apply filters, maybe I wanted to check and all my devices were a particular polar. Pollen technology is enabled and for SNMP maybe I want to take a look at all my devices where SNMP has been enabled. Then the result limit could be toggled. I'm not going to go into too much depth in terms of all of the available columns to you when populating this report. But I will mention to use the sorting features that has been discussed in other videos, to rank things or order things automatically when the report is populated. We can also remove columns by hitting these arrows here, careful with a double triangle because they will remove entire fields from the using side or the available side.
A few other options here, in terms of precision that we do not need to go in to much depth about. You have your summary page and then when you hit finish, you have a list of all the columns that we defined, number of elements, one of the defaults ones I left on and so on and so forth. We have a multipeer cluster, you'd have the name of the peer here as well. A common thing to do from here is to get a CSV. I thought I should mention that as well.
In addition to these videos, remember that the Data Appliance NMS User Manual is available through the NMS UI as shown below. Clicking on the question mark at the top right of any page will automatically bring you to the section of the manual that corresponds to the page you are currently on.
