The Report Settings dialog allows you to customize aspects of the way PA Server Monitor
The available settings and controls in this dialog are:
Report Directory - This directory is where the HTML report files are created and stored by
PA Server Monitor.
Days before Reports are Cleaned Up - This value is the number of days reports (HTML files) will be available. After the given
number of days, PA Server Monitor will delete the report. Note that reports that are always being updated (system summary reports
and Scheduled Reports) will not be aged out.
Clean All Reports Now - Pressing this button will purge all reports. Reports that are constantly refreshed (like the status reports for example) will
be re-created on their normal reporting cycle.
Status Reports Interval - This drop down list allows you to select the interval at which report files are generated.
In a small installation (less than 50 servers) regenerating the reports every minute is not a problem, but in a bigger installation choosing a larger interval
would be more efficient.
Show Maintenance Period on server status report - Self explanatory.
Turn off "Enable WMI Hint" on Server Reports Where it is Being Shown - If PA Server Monitor is configured to poll a server via WMI for richer
status reports, but that WMI polling fails, an error/hint message is shown at the top of the report. This check box disables this warning.
Update Status Reports every time a Monitor enters or leaves an error condition - This option gives very small installations the ability to always have
up to date reports.
