Create Batch Reports (via the Browser)

Note: Only system administrators can create a report.
  1. To create a batch report, go to the History Batch Reports page. There are report options to choose from when creating a report.
  2. Complete the required fields:
    Option Description
    Time Interval Specify the time interval of the report.
    Filters Select types of filters you wish applied to the report. Current tag, feature, host, user, project, and version filters are available. User groups will also show up as filters.
    User-Specific Batch Reports If this option is selected, a list of known user-specific scripts will be listed, and various input form elements will be hidden since they are no longer applicable. The directories $VOVDIR/etc/lm/reports and $VOVDIR/local/lm/reports will be searched for user scripts.
    Output Format Choose between outputting report to HTML or to CSV. If CSV is selected, only tabular report components will be available.

    • Feature Statistics (only tag/feature filters apply)
    • Efficiency Statistics (only tag/feature/project filters apply)
    • Efficiency Histogram (only tag/feature filters apply)
    • Sampling Plot (only tag/feature filters apply)
    • Checkout Statistics (all filters apply)

  3. Click Create Reports.
    This redirects the input criteria to the CLI utility ftlm_batch_report in the form of a job, and the page will be redirected to a page that will display information similar to what is shown below:


    Figure 1. Example of reports

    This table contains all report jobs for the given time interval directory path, along with the size, the age, and the current status of the each report. Clicking the report name brings up the report contents. Clicking the report status displays the detailed batch report job page. The actions column provides a means of invalidating, executing, and deleting the report. If a report is new, it will be invalid (an empty stub) and will need to be executed. Each report will output either an HTML file or a CSV file.

An available reports tree listing will be shown when the directory path does not contain actual report files. In this case, visual information similar to the following will be displayed:


Figure 2. Example of reports

This shows that the directories 2009/ and 2010/ exist in the licmon.swd/html/reports directory, each containing Q1/m03/ and Q2/m05/ subdirectories respectively. The time intervals (directories) with links indicate that there are actual reports for these time intervals. The trash icons allow the user to delete all reports contained at that level and in all subdirectories.
