Scheduled Reports

Cisco Insight v2 Reporting provides a series of actions allowing users to run interactive reports, save and share report definitions, schedule recurring reports, view and customize a dashboard or share results.

It significantly enhances the application usability because users are gradually driven to their preferred reporting information. The wizard guides you through step-by-step procedure where all mandatory and optional parameters can be populated. You can run, schedule, or save your report.

This new approach has several benefits:

It hides the complexity of the original template, structured as a list of report groups, each based on specific traffic tables.

It reduces the redundancy of similar reports spread across the template.

It creates a friendly interface for operators not having a deep knowledge of the SCE environment.

To access and display the report parameters, click the Report Wizard icon on the module launcher.

Parameter

Protocols

Network

This is the first and the mandatory tab. It shows the list of available networks that the operator is allowed to see and use for reporting.

If more than one network is available, the last chosen shall become the pre-selected network of the user, the next time a new report wizard is launched.

When you click the Network tab, you see:

Figure 6-1 Selecting Network

Topic

This is the second tab and it is also mandatory. In the Report wizard, the Topic tab allows the operator to select the desired type of traffic analysis. It shows the available report topics by using multi-step selection (up to three steps) to let the operator select the needed report by specifying the main topic, desired metric, and other report features.

When you click the Topic tab, you see:

Figure 6-2 Selecting Topic

Date and Time

This is the third tab and is an optional tab. It has some default settings (usually a time window of the last 24 hours, days or weeks, but this depends on the selected topic). You need to enter the details in the tab only if you want to set a different time interval.

To enter the details in the tab with a different time interval, uncheck the Show Last 24 hours check box. You can enter date and time by:

Entering the date and hours manually or using the up and down arrow buttons.

Clicking on the calendar dates.

For reports supporting a Start date or End date (based on SCE time stamps), you can select a timezone option to run the report by:

Using the timezone of each SCE device, that is set as default.

Choosing the Use device time zone option, to run the report using the time-zone of the master SCE.

When the format type is Start date or End date, the operator can also set the time aggregation from the Aggregation drop-down list.

When you click the Date & Time tab, you see:

Figure 6-3 Setting the Date and Time

Topology

This tab is optional and dynamic, because it is not always required. It shows the topology view of the selected networks. The trees view (custom or devices) allows either selecting devices easily or grouping of devices to achieve the right view on the chart. You can save the tree configuration in the Report wizard in the form of collapsed or expanded layers.

When you select a device, the Show links (physical or virtual) option gets highlighted along with the device name.

Topology can be drilled down up to the Links or Virtual Links level to include details in the report generated.

When you click the Topology tab, you see:

Figure 6-4 Selecting Topology

Services

This tab is optional and dynamic, because is not always required. It displays the services enabled in the SCE's of the selected networks.

The operator can switch to the trees view (service families, custom services, or list of services) allowing a better understanding of services and family of services and achieving the right view on the chart. The tree configuration can be saved as personal settings in the form of collapsed or expanded layers.

When you click the Services tab, you see:

Figure 6-5 Selecting Services

Figure 6-10 Chart Elements

Chart Elements
Description

Upstream and downstream details on the same chart

Reports showing service series and supporting a filter on traffic direction, can display the information about the upstream component only, the downstream, or both directions.

When displaying bidirectional service series (when the traffic direction filter is set to "Both"), a flag allows expanding each service contribution into upstream and downstream components.

Drill-down reports

The application supports the drill-down feature on interactive charts. When focusing on a specific series, the operator can launch a new report based on the selected series and related to the source report.

This feature is used to navigate through different reports when performing some specific analysis.

Note Not all reports will support the drill-down option.

Data Marker

It provides an interactive data indicator that can be positioned on the plot to mark a specific position in terms of coordinates. The data indicator follows the series plot when moved on the chart- so when it is moved in the X-axis direction, the Y-axis positioning will follow the plot automatically and vice versa.

The indicator must have a display which provides information about its current location, for example, the relevant X and Y axis percentage value in the cumulative report.

Note When printing or exporting the chart, you can choose to display the indicator or not.

Chart zoom in/out

In interactive view you can zoom out interactively and define the level of zoom into the current report chart.

Note When printing or exporting a chart after the zoom operation has been used, the layout of the output reproduce what the operator sees on the screen (the information of the applied zoom level is not lost).

Chart types

A list of alternative chart types (bar, pie, and line) is displayed in the upper-right corner of the Report tab. You can choose any of the chart types before exporting or printing the report.


Leading Input

The tree controllers are present on the Report tab of the wizard as well. It displays the service tree of the services that appear in the chart and allows you to choose the level of detail based on the tree status.

You can perform operations on the chart such as print or export based on the current hierarchy status of the chart.

You can also define the hierarchy type and the depth of the tree when you define a scheduled report.

Cisco Insight v2 provides the ability to configure the number of items displayed in the initial group and the number of items displayed on each expansion of "other".

Figure 6-11 Tree Controllers

The Cisco Insight v2 describes a multi-graph view feature. It provides the ability to create reports that combine several different series into the same view.

The following time controller, associated with time-based charts and positioned under the time axis, can be an example:
