Report Requests

You can either use any of the standard reports included with Performance Reporting Manager, or create your own custom system management reports. For all standard reports, the report specifications and report format are already predefined and saved for your repeated use.

A custom report enables you to specify the content you want included in your reports, as well as the report output format. The saved report specifications are called a report request. The report request is based on one of several report templates. A report request is used to generate either a standard or a custom report. The report request is also used to schedule reports to run regularly.

For more information about using standard report requests, see Chapter 3, Standard Reports . For more information about creating custom report requests, see Chapter 4, Custom Reports.
