Bulk Creating Performance Reports

Discussion created by SC_NMS on Jul 6, 2012

Hi all,

 

I am working on a new deployment (very new to nimsoft, so I am hopefully missing something basic), and one of the things we are interested in seeing is traffic over a number of different interfaces in a chart, as this is the easiest way for a NOC station to see if there is a sudden spike on one specific interface.

 

I have begun by setting these up manually, but there are a number of customizations I do to each interface that makes it quite tedious when I am doing a lot of them, so I am wondering if there is a way to create these in a bulk.  Dragging fields around and clicking around in a flash interface can be extremely slow and time consuming.

 

I have exported the file, but there are many variabes that I would need to a) increment the table IDnumber (and hope it is not taken by something else between when I create the last one, and this one) and b) know the exact QOS data value (for QOS variable).

 

Export of two example charts, one for bandwidth, and one for packets, on the same interface:
