This appendix discusses the following topics:
How to save data for later use or for a third party
How to customize System Web Interface
How to address problems that you might encounter when trying to retrieve data from the statistics store
Authorizations that you might need to retrieve certain information
You might want to review data days or weeks from now, or you might want to share data with an ISV or support organization that does not have access to the system. To do this, take the following steps:
Ensure the data is being recorded.
Data is recorded when you view that data in the System Web Interface, but you probably do not always have that data open in the System Web Interface. Data is recorded when you use the sstore capture command or library routines that read the data, but you are not always capturing or reading this particular data.
To ensure the data you want is recorded, create a collection for those statistic and event identifiers (SSIDs). SSIDs that are in an enabled collection are recorded persistently. See Representing Sets of Statistics and Events and Using Collections for more information about collections. See Creating a Collection in Adding Custom Data to the Oracle Solaris 11.4 StatsStore and System Web Interface to learn how to persistently record the specific data you want.
Ensure the recorded data is saved.
You can use the sstore export command to retrieve data that you recorded from any time in the past. Over time, data can age out of the system so that you have fewer data points per time period. If you think you might want current data weeks or months in the future, you can save the sstore export output in a file.
In the System Web Interface, you can view data from any time period for which the data is available. You can select a longer time view from the Set Time Range dialog, and you can use the Set Time Range dialog and the back and forward arrows to view data values in other time periods.
