Sun Management Center 3.5 Performance Reporting Manager User's Guide

Scheduling Reports

You can schedule any standard or custom report request to automatically generate at a regular interval, as long as the host names are saved in the report request. The output from all scheduled reports is posted to the Sun Management Center 3.5 server machine. The reports are saved in a directory on the server machine. You access these reports in a browser at: http://server-machine-name:8080/prm/reports.
