Sun Management Center 3.5 Performance Reporting Manager User's Guide

Generating Reports

You can generate a standard report in one of three ways:

Each time you generate a standard performance report, you must provide the host name and corresponding port if this information is not predefined. The host name is not saved to the report request. You can specify a different host name each time you generate a standard performance report.

For standard system configuration reports, a report is generated for all hosts identified in the Sun Management Center 3.5 server context that also have the Performance Reporting Manager software installed.

For more information about standard performance and system configuration report requests, see Standard Reports Overview.

Both standard and custom reports are generated this way. For information about scheduling reports to run at regular intervals, see Scheduling Reports.

To Generate a Standard Report

Note –

You must have the Kernel Reader Simple module loaded in order to run any standard report.


  1. Start Report Manager.

  2. Select the name of the desired report request from the hierarchy view.

    Verify that this report request is correct by reviewing the summary information contained in the right pane.

  3. Choose Generate from the File menu, or double-click the name of the report request from the hierarchy view.

    The standard report is generated. A second window opens that contains the report output. For information about when data is available for reports, see Data For Reports.

  4. If a dialog box appears, provide the host name and corresponding port.
