How do I schedule a report to run?

The table shows all the reports that can be scheduled. Click on a report to edit its schedule.

The schedule form is organised as a table. Each row corresponds to a different parameter. The first column contains the parameter name, the second column contains the value for the parameter and the third column contains an option button with typical values for the parameter. Picking an option using the option button will automatically set the parameter value.

The following parameters are available:

Reports can be scheduled to run at almost any frequency. For example, a report that tests for an error condition and raises an event might be scheduled to run every five minutes, while another report charting general traffic trends might be scheduled to run every weekend, and send results by email.
