Introduction to Hinemos Reporting Feature

Hello.

In this article, we will introduce you the Hinemos Reporting feature, one of the extra features of the Hinemos Enterprise features.

< What is Hinemos Reporting?>
Hinemos Reporting provides a feature that creates a report on various history data, including performance, monitoring, and job data accumulated in Hinemos. Hinemos Reporting enables you to output various history data, which is collected by Hinemos periodically, in the form of a report.

In this article, we will output a simple report on performance data on a node-by-node basis.
Now, let’s configure the setting!

 

< Prerequisites >

・An environment where Hinemos Manager and Hinemos Client are installed. *1
・The Reporting option is applied to Hinemos Manager and Hinemos Client. *2
・An additional module is installed on Hinemos Manager.

*1 Both Web Client or Rich Client is fine.
*2 Configure necessary settings in reference to the “Prerequisites” in “Hinemos Reporting ver.6.1. User’s Manual” before applying the Reporting option.

We configured the setting on the machine with the specifications below.
OS : CentOS7
CPU : 2 core
メモリ : 2560MB

 

< Configuration >

■Step 1-1
First, create a resource monitor setting with the monitor items below to accumulate performance data in Hinemos.

・CPU Usage
・Memory Usage (user)
・File System Usage [/]
・Disk I/O Count for Each Device[ALL]
・Network Amount used

This time, the report will be output in the form of graphs using major performance data on CPU, memory, disc, network and file system on a node-by-node basis. Therefore, we created a corresponding resource monitor setting.
The monitor items you need to set vary depending on the template.
For the list of monitor items corresponding to the template, refer to “Template-by-template list of collected values to be output” in “Hinemos Reporting ver.6.1. User’s Manual”.

The important part of this monitor setting is the “Collection” setting.
Setting “Collection” in the resource monitor setting is required to output a report.

 

 

■Step 2-1
Next, configure the report setting.
Create a template set in the Reporting [Template Set] view as follows.
Templates carrying a template ID that ends with “ja” are Japanese.

 

■Step 2-2
Finally, configure the reporting schedule setting.
Create a schedule in the Reporting [Schedule] view as follows.

 

Specify the template set ID of the template set you created in Step 1-1.
Select pdf as the file output format this time from the pdf and xlsx options.
We set the schedule execution time at “17:00 every day”.
Adding event and status notification to it will complete the step!

 

 

< Confirmation >

Confirm that the report has been output properly.
We confirmed the scheduled reporting was successful in the Monitor History [Event] view since we set event notification when creating the schedule.

 

Check the directory shown in the Original Message field.

 

 

After confirming the report was created properly, move the report to any local folder, and then check the details.

*For editing reasons, the characters in the file name are converted into half-width characters.

We confirmed the file was output successfully!
