Report Types

You can generate custom reports based on the following types of information:

 Servers (for example, user activity on a specific server within a specified time period).

 Users (for example, users sessions grouped by login name).

 Applications (for example, applications that were used on monitored servers grouped by

application name).

 Commands (for example, commands entered on a specific date grouped by session title).

 Comments (for example, all new comments to sessions during the last 24 hours).

 Messages (for example, messages displayed to all users who logged on to a specific server).

 Tickets (for example, all sessions that are related to a specific ticket number).

 Audit Logins (logins to the Web console), Audit Sessions (recorded sessions playback), and Audit

Saved Sessions (recorded sessions that were exported).

Note: Sample (custom) reports can be edited and customized according to customer requirements.

Examples of system reports include:

 Activities Report -All user sessions on all monitored servers in the past 48 hours.

 Daily Applications Report - All applications that were accessed in the past 48 hours on all

monitored servers, including the user names who accessed them.

 Terminated Session List - Terminated session list - notification to the administrators. Note that this

built-in report differs from the other reports (system, custom, or manually created) because it

cannot be scheduled to run at specific intervals. The report is automatically sent when an Agent

session is abruptly terminated.

Note: Built-in (system) reports cannot be edited or deleted.
