The Report Scheduler allows you to schedule the automatic
generation of report at regular intervals. Report could be the result and the
concatenation of multiple report
The generated report could be saved in the user directory or global directory and thus be available to WEB remote console user(s).
The report Scheduler uses Report Script File as entries ( .rep extension) and provides Report as output file with .html extension). Reports are displayed by a common WEB navigator.
A set of scripts could be saved as a template file and re used in other Plug-in attached to other hosts.
Like other LoriotPro Directory Plug-in the Report Scheduler is attached to a Directory Host object. In the directory select the host to which you want to attach the Plug-in and from the contextual menu select -> Insert Task -> Report Scheduler.
