1. Once MonitorWare Console is opened, on the left hand
side, you can see a tree view with a node called "Reports". Click on that node.
It will show you the list of avaiable reports under it as well as on the right
hand side. You will see something similar to the following figure.
You can now click on any of the displayed reports.
For the purpose of this article, I have selected "Who is Attacking Me"
report. Once you click on the "Who is Attacking Me" Report, you will see
something similar to the figure shown below
2. Once you click on System Status Report, the
following form will be displayed
3. MonitorWare Console provides a powerful
feature of letting users define and apply filters on any report. Using this
form, you can apply the filters of your own choice. (For details about the
filters, please refer to MonitorWare Console's Manual which can be accessed by
pressing the Help button in MonitorWare Console's tool bar)
4. For some reports, you will see an "Advanced Filters..." button at the
bottom left of this filter form. This button will open up an Advanced Filter
Form which is specific to that report. For example, for this particular report,
it will open up the following dialog:
With this Advanced Filters' Form, you can
specify some additional filters. With this filter form, you can pass another
information to the report engine and the report will be generated according to
the number of tries that you have specified above.
6. Once you define the advanced filters in
the form shown above, press the "Set" button. You will be taken back to the
previous Filter From.
7. Once you have defined all the filters, you
can actually save all of your settings by pressing the "Save Report" Button in
the Filter Form so that you don't have to define these filters daily if you are
interested in seeing this report daily.
8. You can now press the "Generate Report" button. It will open up a report
in HTML format according to your defined filters as shown below
