Performance data logging on agent machines is provided by the history logging capability included with Sun Management Center 3.5. Performance Reporting Manager only collects the data logged in the history log files. The data then is transferred to the Sun Management Center 3.5 server machine and loaded into the database. Report data is obtained by making queries to the database to determine trends in the performance statistics over a specified time period.
The report options are predefined in the report request. The report output format for all standard performance reports is a graph. The following three standard performance reports are included with Performance Reporting Manager. They are organized by their category and subcategory names.
