I'm with Pablo on this one! There has got to be a way to generate charts and graphs, otherwise the purpose and value of the product is completely lost on management! Please somebody post an answer...
currently there is no way to do this with the report writer.
I have seen this request many times and I have tried to request this feature many times as well.
If you want to be heard, post this feature request in the feature request section so that the product manager knows how many people want this feature!
I personally think that this would greatly enhance the product as you could post these graphs as a report directly on the Orion website as well which enables you to change(re-create) any graph to show exactly what you want.
Please move this thread to the feature request section and add me to the list.
IS there any way of obtaining automatically Reports with the graphs of traffic in interfaces with the Report writer?
As others have already pointed out, this can't be done with Report Writer. However, if you know what specific interfaces you are interested in, you can create a dashboard/view that contains graphs for the interfaces you are interested in.
For example; we have three major upstream providers that connect via 3 different interfaces on 3 different border routers. We needed way to see the utilization of our total upstream capacity in a single view. To accomplish this I created a dashboard/view with a graph showing the utilization of each of those interfaces as well as a multi-series graph combining all of them to show a combined total utilization.
Would something like this work for you?
In the other hand, is there a way of making it send the pdf by email? Or do I need to create an independent task with windows?
If you create dashboards/views as noted above you can then have those sent via email using the Orion Report Scheduler tool.
Hope this helps!
