Chapter 19. Reports

PSM periodically creates reports on the activity of the administrators, its system information, as well as the processed traffic. In addition, you can use the connection database for creating custom reports from connection statistics.

These reports are available in Portable Document (PDF) format by selecting Reporting > Reports from the Main Menu. The reports are displayed on a search interface. For more information on using and customizing this interface, see Section 5.8.1, Using the internal search interface.

The reports are also sent to the e-mail address set at Basic Settings > Management > Mail settings > Send reports to, unless specified otherwise in the configuration of the report.

Note

If the Basic Settings > Management > Mail settings > Send reports to address is not set, the system report is sent to the PSM administrator's e-mail address.

Reports can be generated for fixed periods:

  • Daily reports are generated every day at 00:01.

  • Weekly reports are generated every week on Monday at 00:01.

  • Monthly reports are generated on the first day of every month at 00:01.

You can also generate a partial report if necessary, for details, see Procedure 19.6, Generating partial reports.

To access the reports from the PSM web interface, the user must have the appropriate privileges (for custom reports, the default requirement is membership in the search group). In addition, individual reports might have different access requirements configured. For more information on configuring user rights, see Section 5.7, Managing user rights and usergroups.

The following information is available about the reports:

  • Download: A link to download the report.

  • Name: Name of the report.

  • Interval: The length of the reported period, for example week, month, and so on.

  • Report from: The start of the reported interval.

  • Report to: The end of the reported interval.

  • Generate time: The date when the report was created.

Tip

Use the time bar to find reports that contain a particular period. If you select a period (for example click on a bar), only those reports will be displayed that contain information about the selected period.
