7.1 Reports

The Reports subtab enables you to generate XML reports on objects and their attributes, and their direct subobjects. You can generate reports for virtual machines, Oracle VM Servers, server pools and storage. Each report contains the attributes for each object, and their direct subobjects. For example:

  • The server pool report includes all server pool attributes, and subobjects such as anti-affinity groups, server update groups and Oracle VM Servers.

  • The Oracle VM Server report includes Oracle VM Server attributes, and subobjects such as bond ports, ports, Oracle VM Storage Connect plug-ins, storage, and networks.

  • The virtual machine report includes virtual machine attributes, and subobjects such as VNICs, server pool, Oracle VM Server, virtual disks, virtual CDROMs, physical disks.

  • The storage reports include storage attributes, and subobjects such as refresh servers, admin servers, files systems, access groups, and Oracle VM Storage Connect plug-ins.

To get information on subobjects, like the virtual machines running on Oracle VM Servers in a server pool, you should generate a report for each level of object, so generate a report for the server pool, and a report for all Oracle VM Servers in the server pool, and a report for all virtual machines on all Oracle VM Servers in the server pool.

To generate an XML report on an object:

  1. Select the Reports and Resources tab.

  2. Select the Reports subtab link.

  3. Use the Report Type field to select the object type for which to generate the report from the options:

    • Server Pool

    • Server

    • VM

    • Storage

  4. Optionally, use the Name Filter field to restrict the object list using a name filter. See Section 1.16, “Name Filters” for information on using name filters.

  5. Use the To Be Generated field to select All to create a report on all the available objects, or select individual objects.

  6. Click Export to generate the report. The report is generated as an XML file and sent to the browser.

You can also run these reports using Generate Report icon Generate Report in the management pane toolbar for each object.

You can also create a graphical report on a virtual machine. See Section 3.5.2.17, “Display VM Hierarchy Viewer” for information on creating a graphical report on a virtual machine. The graphical report shows the same information about a virtual machine as the XML report.
