About Historical view display options
The following display options are available for historical reports. The following parameters are displayed:
Define the report's scope using the drop-down list. This field denotes the entity on which grouping is required. For example, when you select the Report On parameter as Client, the Y-axis report data is grouped per client.
Example: Job Status, Image type etc.
Description to display along with the report. If you leave this field blank, no description is provided by default.
For Historical reports, a label for the horizontal (X) axis. If you leave this field blank, a default label is provided.
The metric used to define the graph's horizontal (X) axis.
Examples: Attempt End Time, Client Name
If you choose a Report Data parameter like Client Name which is not time-based, another parameter called Time Basis appears.
This parameter appears if you select a Report Data parameter like Client Name that is not related to time. Time Basis resembles the time attribute on which time filter is applied as criteria. This attribute is not shown if you select No Time Basis while configuring the timeframe in the Wizard. Time Basis is the metric used for assigning a time to each item in the report, if not specified by the Report Data parameter.
Example: The start time or the end time for each backup job.
Y1 or Y2 -Axis
For Historical reports, a label for the horizontal (Y1 or Y2) axis. If you leave this field blank, a default label is provided.
For Historical reports, the metric used to define the graph's vertical (Y1 or Y2) axis.
Examples: Job Size, Status Code etc.

The report format. Additional formats may be available depending on the values specified in Report Data.
Show Forecast with forecast periods
Use the Trendline and Forecast parameters to project future trends by averaging actual data from the recent past. Check, and use the drop-down list to specify a number of forecast periods (intervals). This displays a forecast line extending to future dates, using linear regression to predict values based on the trend of data within the report's time frame.
Example: 12 shows forecast data for the next 12 months (if the Time Frame Group By is 1 month).
The following Web site helps in calculating the forecast:
Show trendline with moving average period of
Use the Trendline parameter to indicate a general pattern or direction by averaging actual data from the recent past. Check, and use the drop-down list to specify the number of data points to factor into the average. At each interval on the graph, the trendline shows a moving average of the most recent data points.
Example: 3 displays a trendline that, at each interval, shows the average of the current data point and the two previous data points.
For Historical reports, select the Target Performance checkbox and then either Y1 or Y2-Axis radio button. Type a value in the text box to include a target level or threshold in the report display. The target value appears as a horizontal line, useful for making quick visual comparisons between the target value and the actual values being reported.
