Logon Simulation - By Application / Desktop Report
This report helps administrators identify the problem-prone application/desktop in your farm, zoom into its logon performance, and diagnose its root-cause. A single glance at this report will reveal the following:
To generate this report, do the following:
Select the By Application option by following the menu sequence: REPORTS BY FUNCTION -> Logon Simulation. Figure 1 then appears.
In Figure 1 that appears, select a criterion for analysis from the Report By list box. Using this report, you can analyze the logon simulation of one/more independent virtualized components, or those that are part of a segment, service, or a zone. This way, you can assess the impact of the applications hosted on the virtual components of a particular service/segment/zone, and accordingly take decisions. The options provided by the Report By list box are discussed hereunder:
Then, select the application from the Application list for which the report should be generated. By default, All option is chosen from this list.
Then, specify the Timeline for the graph. You can either provide a fixed time line such as 1 hour, 2 days, etc., or select the Any option from the list to provide a From and To date/time for report generation.
For every user registered with the eG Enterprise system, the administrator can indicate the maximum timeline for which that user can generate a report. Once the maximum timeline is set for a user, then, whenever that user logs into eG Reporter and attempts to generate a report, the Timeline list box in the report page will display options according to the maximum timeline setting of that user. For instance, if a user can generate a report for a maximum period of 3 days only, then 3 days will be the highest option displayed in the Timeline list - i.e., 3 days will be the last option in the fixed Timeline list. Similarly, if the user chooses the Any option from the Timeline list and proceeds to provide a start date and end date for report generation using the From and To specifications, eG Enterprise will first check if the user's Timeline specification conforms to his/her maximum timeline setting. If not, report generation will fail. For instance, for a user who is allowed to generate reports spanning over a maximum period of 3 days only, the difference between the From and To dates should never be over 3 days. If it is, then, upon clicking the Run Report button a message box will appear, prompting the user to change the From and To specification.
In addition to the settings discussed above, this report comes with a set of default specifications. These settings are hidden by default. If you do not want to disturb these default settings, then you can proceed to generate the report by clicking the Run Report button soon after you pick one/more components for report generation. However, if you want to view and then alter these settings (if required), click on the icon. The default settings will then appear in the MORE OPTIONS drop down window (See Figure 2). The steps below discuss each of these settings and how they can be customized.
Next, indicate the report Time period.
By default, the Time period is set to 24 hours. Accordingly, the From and To parameters in the [timeframe] section of the eg_report.ini file (in the <eg_install_dir>\manager\config directory) are set to 00:00 and 24:00 respectively. If need be, you can override this default setting by configuring a different timeframe against the From and/or To parameters.
eG Enterprise System offers the flexibility of allowing the administrators to view the abnormality experienced by an application during logon from the generated report at a single glance. This can be achieved by providing the lower/higher threshold limits of your choice i.e., providing the Minor/Major/Critical values in the appropriate colored text boxes underneath the Logon Duration (secs) option. Doing so, whenever the logon duration of the application violate the specified threshold values, the logon duration of that particular application will be highlighted with the corresponding color of the specified text box in the generated report. This way, you can easily identify abnormalities experinced by the application during logon in your environment. Similarly, you are allowed to set the threshold limits for the application enumeration duration underneath the Application Enumeration Duration (secs) option as well as the application launch duration underneath the Application Launch Duration (secs) option.
In large environments, reports generated using months of data can take a long time to complete. Administrators now have the option of generating reports on-line or in the background. When a report is scheduled for background generation, administrators can proceed with their other monitoring, diagnosis, and reporting tasks, while the eG manager is processing the report. This saves the administrator valuable time. To schedule background processing of a report, you can either select the Background Save - PDF option from the Report Generation list. In this case, a Report Name text box will appear, where you would have to provide the name with which the report is to be saved in the background. To process reports in the foreground, select the Foreground Generation - HTML option from this list.
If the Report type is Foreground Generation - HTML, then Figure 3 will appear as soon as you click the Run Report button.
For each simulation and application chosen, this report provides the following:
