Ad hoc reports can be generated at any time to quickly gather data on your systems. Simply follow the numbered steps of choosing the report you want, choose the desired display type, the data set to report on and finally fill in any parameters needed by that particular report. (Note that some display types don't make sense for some reports. For example, measured times (ping times, web response times, etc) shown as a pie chart). When you press the Generate Report button you will be taken to a "Report Generation in Progress" page, and then automatically forwarded to the finished report.
Since the reports are HTML pages, you can open a report in a regular browser, print the report, etc.
