Resource Metric Trends Report

Overview

The Resource Metric Trends report can display minimum, maximum, average, change, and sum values for any metric (datapoint) that is available for a resource (e.g. device, cloud resource) or group of resources. This information is presented in a tabular data format and can additionally include graphs per resource, DataSource or datapoint. Because the flexibility of this report allows you to view graphs and numerical data for multiple resources, you may find it useful for quickly reviewing recent performance metrics across a group of resources.

Note: If you’re looking for a report on CPU trends for a group of devices, consider creating the Server CPU report instead.

Configuring a Resource Metric Trends Report

To configure a Resource Metric Trends report, select Reports | Add | Report | Resource Metric Trends. A report dialog appears that allows you to configure various report settings.

Configuring Settings Common to All Report Types

The first four settings that are found in the report dialog (Title, Description, Group, and Format), along with the final setting (Generate this report on a schedule), are universal to all report types. To learn more about these global report settings, see Creating and Managing Reports.

Configuring Resource Metric Trends Report Settings

In the Resource Metric Trends Report Settings area of the report configuration dialog, shown and discussed next, specify the metrics you would like to track, as well as the resources for which you would like to track them.

Resource Groups / Resources

From the Resource Groups or Resources field, limit the resources to which this report will apply by designating one or more resource groups or resources. You can use explicit names or glob expressions in these fields.

Note: Multi-glob lookup is available in this field. You can select a combination of both glob and distinct values to specify your resources/resource groups. For more information on LogicMonitor’s support of glob, see Using Glob throughout your account.

Datapoints

Define the datapoints to include in your report. These datapoints will be pulled only from the resource(s) you specified in the previous field.

You can enter datapoint calculations into the Datapoint field, for example: InOctets*8/1000/1000. This is helpful when want to convert the units of your collected data, without defining a datapoint definition.

Top 10 only

Check this option to limit the report’s results to the top ten values.

Scale by units of 1024

By default, the graph is scaled by units of 1000. For certain types of reports, such as storage capacity in bytes, you may want to check this option to scale the units by 1024.

Sorted By

By default, your results will be sorted by resources, but you can use the Sorted By field’s dropdown menu to sort based on instance or datapoint instead.

Report Format

Select whether the report should be text only or include embedded graphs (e.g. one graph per resource, DataSource, Instance, or datapoint).

Columns

Uncheck any columns that you would like to exclude from the report. The columns included in the report determine the types of values (e.g. minimum, maximum, average, etc.) that display for datapoints. To reorder columns, grab the icon to the far left of a column name and drag and drop the column into its new position.
