Looking to compare latest NPM features with previous versions of NPM?
The NPM new feature summary offers a comparison of new features and improvements offered with this release.
NPM v10.6, supports both Report Writer and new Web Based Reporting. Both are independent of each other and are fully functional in the latest release.
The below documentation and video have been created as external resources explaining how to use the new reporting feature in 10.6 (and SAM 6.0).
Web Based Reporting Documentation:
Help with Report Writer
We do not specifically write custom reports for customers.
For help with customization, post your queries to Thwack and both the customers and internal Solarwinds employees respond to such requests.
Many custom reports are already shared on thwack content exchange, refer to the below links for more information:
In the Report Writer, follow the below steps to view the SQL.
You cannot edit the SQL code from this SQL tab.
Several SQL codes shown in Show SQL > SQL are basic and are used in pulling data from the database tables. Others are more complex and store SQL views.
As you cannot edit the SQL directly on the SQL tab, you can do the following if you wish to modify the SQL code:
OrionReportWriter.log, available in Logs\Orion\ has a record of all actions, validations, and exceptions related to starting and running the Orion Report Writer.
Once the report is created, you can view it in Report Writer, WEB Console or use Report Scheduler to email them out automatically once a week\month.
Note: Reports from Report Scheduler are generated from Web Console URL and not from Report Writer.
NPM v10.7 is now using its built in Scheduler versus old Windows Task Scheduler.
We now have these logs now stored rolling last 6 logs in
Applies to: NPM v10.6 and later.
