I do it using Custom Properties. You can bring up the Custom Properties editor on your Solar Winds server. What these let you do is create columns with useful meta data. These columns can then be used as filters in reports. So you then create reports that use the custom property to filter. I for example have a region custom property. I then have reports for individual regions by using filters. This can also be handled using groups. I just find custom properties to be a little easier to maintain and then use groups with dynamic queries to bunch certain characteristics up, such as device type and region. I then stick these reports on a new view. Easy enough. So in short:
1. Create custom properties
2. Create reports that use the custom properties
3. Display in a new view
If you need more detail let me know.
thank u for your answer, but can u guide through steps. please
Sorry it took me a while to respond. All the information is available in the Admin Guide below.
How to make a custom property is on page 323. its pretty step by step.
Creating reports is on page 282
Creating views is on page 150
Its very well documented there. The key for the reports is to use the custom property field that you created as the filter. I hope this helps.
