Overview

The Statseeker Console provides the major entryway into the Statseeker reporting functionality. From here you have access to every Statseeker report, be it pre-packaged or custom made to suit your exact requirements, as well as the options and filters to focus that report to show the data you want in the way you want.

The Console tailors the stock Report List to reflect those devices/interfaces being polled by Statseeker, filtering out any pre-packaged report that does not apply to your network. For example, if your network does not feature a Paolo Alto Firewall, then no Paolo Alto Firewall reports will be displayed in the Console. If, later, a Paolo Alto Firewall is added to your network as a polled device, then the associated reports will be made available in the Console.

Viewing A Report

To view a report from the Console:

  • Select any number of groups or devices
  • Then select the report to run

The report will launch in a new window.

Note: tabular reports can be viewed in either standard or compact layout. The compact layout removes whitespace to reduce row height, allowing for more data rows per page/window. This is a user per-user setting which can be updated by the user at any time, see Editing Users and Updating Preferences.

[top]


Console Report Filters

Reports generally focus upon a device/interface, group of devices/interfaces or a metric, and can be filtered. The filters consist of four main sections.

  • Group Filter
  • Device Name, IP Address or sysName
  • Time Filter
  • General

You can set any/all filters prior to running the report, this will configure the default state for the report when launched. This is achieved by:

  • Assigning a timefilter from the timefilter control in the top-right of the Console
  • Selecting devices or groups, limiting the report focus to these devices or group content. Hold Shift while clicking to select groups of devices and Ctrl to add/remove a single item to/from the selection.
  • Specifying a text or RegEx string in the General filter section will run a string compare across all content in the report (all columns in a tabular report)

Clicking the report after setting these filters will launch the report and apply the filter as the default state for the report.

Note: prior to Statseeker v5.5.3, two versions of the Console were available to users: Standard and Advanced. The Standard Console view:

  • Restricted the timefilter options to just the content of the Favorites list
  • Hid the General Filters section

[top]

The Console Time Filter presents a range of options that can be used to specify a reporting period and are applied to any of the legacy 'event' based reports, such as Availability, Syslog, Traps, and Thresholds. The timefilter setting is also passed through to any custom report as the default timefilter when that report does not feature a specified timefilter in the report configuration.

  • Favorites - populated from entries configured from the Modify button or in the Administration Tool
  • Range and Duration - can be used together to specify a reporting period
  • Weekday and Time - can be used together to filter a specified reporting period
  • Time Zone - select the time zone to be used with the specified reporting period
  • Query Info - a set of time filter rules used to interrogate the Statseeker database to build the report. This field can be manually edited at any time.

The General Filter offers additional filtering options:

  • Text Filter - enter a single string, or regex expression, to be used in filtering the results based on the returned values for Device Name
  • Top N - limit the number of results to return
  • Grouping Option - the operator to be applied when making multiple selections in the Group Filter column
Note:

  • The default Top N can be configured from the edit user screen
  • Custom reports can be configured with a specific Results per page setting which will override the Top N setting in the Console

[top]

Filtering Within Reports

Most reports contain filter options within the report header allowing you to assign/modify filters after the report has been launched.

  • Any filters applied in the Console prior to running the report are assigned as the default filters used when the report is launched
  • If is is a custom report and the configuration specifies filters:
    • These will be assigned as the default, overriding the Console filters
    • The report header will contain a notification of this override

Time Selector

Most reports feature a time selector in the report header. This selector functions as a timefilter and can be used to dynamically alter the reporting period of the report while viewing it. When opening a report containing a time filter, the time selector defaults to this value. When opening a report that does not have a time filter configured, the time selector will use the filter specified in the Console, by default this wil be Today.

  • Favorites - offers the current content of the time filter favorites list
  • Hours - a 24hr slider with 1 hour increments
  • Days - the selector contains 'today so far', plus the previous 7 days, with 1 day increments
  • Months - the selector contains 'this month so far', plus the previous 12 months, with 1 month increments
  • Original Query - reset the report to the original/default time filter

By default, reports display the report timefilter in the header (this can be disabled in the report configuration, see Custom Reporting). When using the time selector to modify the reporting period, the report header is updated to reflect your selection.

Also, when modifying the reporting period via the Time Selector, the Resolution (interval between plotted data points, and the size of aggregated data 'buckets') used in the report is automatically updated to best suit the scope of the report.

For example, let's say you have a graph with a reporting period of the previous 3 months, and a resolution of 15 minutes. If you updated the reporting period to the last 8 hours via the Time Selector, then the resolution would be updated to 1 minute, giving a granular view, far more suited to the current view of your data. Conversely, using the Time Selector to take a report looking at a single day's data out to the previous 6 months, might take the resolution from 1 minute out to 12 hours. Any slice of that 6 months history can still be viewed at 1-minute resolution when the reporting period is set accordingly.

[top]

Group and Device Filters

The Group and Device filters will reflect any group/device selections that were applied in the Console prior to launching the report. This filter selection can be modified to refocus the report while viewing the report.

  • The Group filter contains all groups on the server
  • Group selections determine the content of the Device filter
  • Multiple selections can be made in both the Group and Device filters

[top]

Text Filter

The Text filter will reflect the content of the General > Text filter that was applied in the Console prior to launching the report. This filter can be modified to refocus the report while viewing the report.

The filter:

  • Accepts either a simple string or RegEx
  • Matches that string/expression across strings within the report (entity names in graphs, string columns in tables). Does not match against date/time or timeseries metric fields.

[top]


Report Links, Drill Downs & Historical Views

Most reports will offer the ability to drill-down to more specific data regarding a device, interface, property, or activity presented in the report. In this way, you can review a metric across a range of devices, or a range of metrics returned from a single device, identify anomalous values, and then investigate further to resolve the issue as required.

In tabular reports, these drilldowns and pointers to other reports are provided as links on each of the appropriate cell contents, simply click to access the new report.


All graphs act as links to a 'details' report for that metric on that device.


In a similar manner, you can zoom out to review a device or metric over a larger, historical time scale. By default, most reports will present what is currently happening, but you can easily alter the report period to ascertain if the current behavior is anomalous or typical.

Historical data is available for all devices/interfaces from the moment that they are discovered, and this data is always available at the same, 1-minute interval, resolution that it was collected. Statseeker will never 'roll-up', or average your data, regardless of how long ago it was collected.

[top]


Advanced Reporting Tool

Many of the sections in the Report List feature an entry called Reporting Tool which provides access to additional reporting customization options useful for quickly configuring one-off reports. This feature is also available as a link from within many reports.

The Advanced Reporting Tool breaks available filters and options into 3 groups:

  • Time Filter - offering the same options as the advanced console time filters
  • General Options - general options concerning the type of report to be run which vary depending on the focus of the report (server, device, interface, etc.) but can include:
    • Report Type - which metric to report on
    • Database Type - data manipulation options (display averages, totals, maximums, etc.)
    • Interval - resolution of the data
    • Aggregate - toggle to select individual or aggregate values reported
    • 95th Percentile - toggle to identify the 95th percentile values for the metric
  • Graphing Options - presentation options for graphs
    • Graph Type - line, bar, etc.
    • Pixels Per Value - how large to display each data point, useful for modifying how bar graphs are presented
    • Y Height - modify the y-axis height by the selected % of standard Statseeker graph height
    • Y Gridlines - select number of y-axis reference lines to display
    • Y Maximum - specify a value and a unit of measurement and only values under that limit will be plotted
    • X Gridlines - toggle to display x-axis reference lines
    • Legend - toggle to display
    • Calendar - toggle to wrap the x-axis and remove the requirement for horizontal scrolling when viewing large data sets

The tool allows you to produce tabular reports (using the Report button) or graphical reports (Graph button) and to export (Export button) the report data in *.csv format.

Statseeker Stock Reports

Statseeker is packaged with over 300 stock reports covering all aspects of network monitoring, providing you the ability to interrogate and visualize your network infrastructure and activity with no requirement for additional report configuration.

By default, many of these reports are hidden, but once Statseeker discovers a device capable of sending data that would be presented in the report, the report is made visible in the Console - this helps keep the reporting options within your Statseeker server clean, and focused on the content of your network. For example, if your network only features Paolo Alto Firewalls, the Firewall section in the report list will only display Paolo Alto Reports.

Note: to force the display of all reports:

  • Select Administration Tool > Network Discovery / Advanced Options > Advanced Options
  • Scroll down to the Reports section and set Report Hiding to Off
  • Click Save
  • Return to the Console and refresh the page

The following reports are displayed on all Statseeker servers regardless of the makeup of the network that Statseeker is monitoring:

This report requires that a custom data package be installed and devices, associated with that package, be discovered on your network.

The User Poll field reflects the default polling state for the given entity, which is configured in the Admin Tool > Custom Data Ranges. The Disable and Delete options allow you to override this default polling behavior on a per device level. Any configuration changes applied via this report are applied during the next Statseeker Configuration Database build, a background process which occurs every few minutes.

Note: the General Filters > Text Filter in the Console exhibits extended functionality when used with this report. Generally, this filter can only be used to filter on the Device Name, but when used with this report it can be used to filter on all fields in the selected CDT Report.
For filtering purposes, the fields of the report are all concatenated with 'pipe' (|) delimiters. E.g. a row of the report can be seen to be, behind the scenes, as 124|mydevice|if0|10000.
You can supply a regex in the Text Filter field to run against this concatenated string, and filter across any field (or combination of fields) in the report.

Custom Reports

In addition to both the stock reports and the Advanced Reporting Tool, Statseeker offers an extensive range of custom reports targeting specialist functionality, and a wide range of manufacturer-specific network devices and device configurations.

All of these custom reports are available from the Console Report List, and can be added to dashboards, included in their own version of summary reports (See Embedded Reports), and have automated emailing schedules applied. For details on creating and editing custom reports see Statseeker Custom Reporting.

These custom reports (and any that you create and flag as available from the Console) are automatically grouped according to the report data type and located at the bottom of the Report List in the Console. By default, Statseeker hides from the Console (they are always available from the Reports panel) those reports which don't apply to any devices currently being monitored on your network. As Statseeker discovers these devices, the corresponding custom reports are displayed in the Console.

Note: to force the display of all reports:

  • Select Administration Tool > Network Discovery / Advanced Options > Advanced Options
  • Scroll down to the Reports section and set Report Hiding to Off
