    Currently, Introscope does not have the capability for scheduling reports directly.


    However, there is a way you can achieve this.  Introscope supports XML and CSV formats for report output, so by using the Command Line Workstation, you can generate a report and create a scheduler (on Windows) or a cron job (on UNIX) to run it regularly.


    Example of CLW command:


    generate report named \"Application Capacity Planning\" in management module named "Sample" starting at \"2015/3/1 12:00 AM\" ending at \"2015/3/10 12:00 AM\" to report.csv


    Thanks,

    Matt

    To add to this, you probably want to set up parameters for your start date/time and end date/time so you can get it every day.  My example above is for a series of days and I just realized that after I wrote it.

     

    So you could tailor it to your needs, i.e. starting at 8 AM to 8 PM daily.

    I wrote a field pack a while back that takes care of the complicated stuff and allows you to schedule report generation.

     

    Field Pack: Introscope Report Generator

    Hi Chris,

    Could you please let me know how this Field Pack should be installed in Introscope and how does it work?

    It's all available in the download.  It runs from anywhere you wish and sets up with cron to run relatively simple scripts with command-line workstation (CLW) to execute reports.  I created config files so you could easily schedule the execution of various reports in a modular style.
