Goal: The report gives detail statistics on availability, alarms, storage usage, memory and CPU, for all equipments of a hostgroup given in entrance.
How to interpret the report?
For each equipment, the report is divided into four parts:
The first one diplays detailed statistics on the equipment’s availability.
The second one diplay detailed statistics on the equipment’s performances ( CPU and Memory)
On the third one, Storage capacity is detailed by services and services categories..
The last one displays the distribution of inbound and outbound traffic of all interfaces of the equipment.
1 - Storage statistics at the last day of the reporting period
2 - Storage statistics at the last day of the reporting period
3 - Storage statistics at the last day of each month
4 - Storage statistics at the last day of the reporting period versus the last day of the previous period
Parameters needed by report are:
- The reporting period
- The following Centreon object:
|Time period||Dropdown list||Time period to use|
|Interval||Text field||Number of month to display in evolution graphs|
|Hostgroup||Dropdown list||Hostgroup to select|
|Host Category||Multi Select||Host category to select|
|CPU service category||Dropdown list||Service category containing CPU service(s)|
|CPU metric(s)||Multi Select||Select metric(s) to use for CPU statistics|
|Storage service category||Multi Select||Storage service categories containing the storage service(s)|
|Storage Metric(s)||Multi Select||Metric to exclude from the storage statistics|
|Memory service category||Dropdown list||Service category containing memory service(s)|
|Memory metric(s)||Multi select||Select metric(s) to use for memory statistics|
|Traffic service category||Dropdown list||Service category containing traffic service(s)|
|Traffic In metric||Dropdown list||Select inbound metric traffic|
|Traffic Out metric||Dropdown list||Select outbound metric traffic|
To ensure consistency in graphs and statistics, some prerequisites are necessary regarding to performance data returned by plugins.
Performance data are data returned by a plugin after the “pipe” - “|” - , these data have to be returned as follow:
output-plugin | metric1=valueunit;warning_treshold;critical_treshold;minimum;maximum metric2=value ....
It is important to make sure that plugins return the maximum value because lot of statistics are based on percentage, calculated using this maximum value. Be sure that the storage plugins, memory plugin and traffic plugin return this maximum value. The unit must be Bytes for Storage and memory plugin and Kbps for the traffic plugin.
This report is compatible with the timeperiod 24x7 only. This timeperiod have to be configured on the menu “General options | Capacity statistic agregated by month | Live services for capacity statistics calculation”
