Reports provide a bridge between detailed views (which provide point-in-time information) and alerts (which tell you there is a problem). Reports can contain detailed, current state information, or they can contain historical data.

You can run an ad-hoc report, or schedule reports to be sent to you automatically, as a PDF, a web page, or email. For example, use a schedule when you want to receive the bandwidth usage from the last 7 days report every Monday morning.

SolarWinds recommends that you identify who needs to receive performance or status reports, and how often they should receive them.

Reports populate when:

SolarWinds provides predefined reports for each Orion module. Click Home > Reports to see the available predefined reports.

On the All Reports page, you can select any report and click View Report to run it immediately.

You can create your own custom reports by either editing an existing report or creating a report from scratch. Reports can combine any number or type of Orion resources, including charts, tables, and gauges. You can customize the size of the report, the layout, and add a logo and a footer.
