Configuring timeframe parameters
You use the Time Frame parameters to define the report's overall time frame and the intervals for which data is reported.
You can specify absolute or relative time frame for a report.
You can select the following timeframe parameters:
Select Previous or Next from the drop-down list (wherever applicable), and then specify the number of hours, days, weeks, months, quarters, or years to define the period. The report displays data collected within the specified time period, for example, data of the previous 3 months.
The Relative Timeframe is especially useful for reports that you plan to generate on a regular basis. Such reports always show data collected over the most recent time interval.
Start from the beginning of <selected unit>
This applies only to Relative time frames. In Start from the beginning of <selected unit>, the <selected unit> may stand for Hours, Days, Weeks, Months, Quarters, or Years depending on what unit you select as a Relative Timeframe.
If you specify a relative timeframe and check, the Relative timeframe is calculated starting from the first day for week, month, quarter, or year selection, from 12 A.M. for day selection, and from the earliest whole number (no minutes or seconds) for hour selection. Do not select the check box if you want to view data for the entire period specified in Relative Timeframe.
Define the beginning and end of the time interval to be covered by the report. When you enter absolute dates, the report's contents remain static whenever you display it.
Ignore From Date
This applies only to Absolute timeframes. Check this option to view all the data on and before the To date that you enter in the Absolute timeframe.
Example: Suppose you specify an absolute timframe: From March 1, 2004, 12:00 A.M. to April 30, 2004, 12:00 A.M. The report displays data from the time period between the start and end dates. Now if you check Ignore From Date, the report ignores the From Date and displays all data before April 30, 2004, 12:00 A.M.
Ignore To Date
This applies only to Absolute timeframes. Check this option to view all data on and after the From date that you enter in the Absolute timeframe.
Example: Suppose you specify an absolute timframe: From March 1, 2004, 12:00 A.M. to April 30, 2004, 12:00 A.M. The report displays data from the time period between the start and end dates. Now if you check IgnoreTo Date, the report ignores the To Date and displays all data on and after March 1, 2004, 12:00 A.M.
No Time Basis
This signifies that the data shown should not be grouped with time. The report includes all the data in the OpsCenter database irrespective of time. The timeframe grouping is not applicable.
Day Window is applicable when you specify an Absolute or Relative timeframe. From the Day Window, you can specify the time interval that constitutes one day. Select values from the From and To drop-down lists.
Example: 6:00 PM to 6:00 AM
Example: 12:00 AM (midnight) to 12:00 PM (noon)
Report Time Frame Grouping
This option appears only when you select a Historical view type.
Select the time interval by which you want to group the records. For example, if you selected 1 month as the Report Time Frame and 10 days as the Group By interval, the report shows records in three chunks of data grouped by 10 days.
