The available settings and controls in this dialog are as follows.

remain after using this selection.
Status Reports Interval - This drop down list allows you to select the interval at which report files are generated.

Turn off "Enable WMI Hint" on Server Reports Where it is Being Shown - If PA Storage Monitor detects that
a server being monitored that is configured as a Windows server does not provide WMI service, you will see a warning message
indicating this fact on every report page associated with that server. This check box, when selected, disables this warning.
Update Status Reports every time a Monitor enters or leaves an error condition - If you are
monitoring a large number of servers, then this option should only be used if you are certain that the computer that is
running PA Storage Monitor can support the relatively high processing load that will be created.
