View Reports
LiveNX provides very flexible Reporting for monitoring multiple dimensions of network and application performance. One report can be run individually, or multiple reports can be bundled together into a Template. These reports can run ad-hoc or saved and scheduled on a residual basis. Reports can be shared with colleagues via a shared URL or via email. Reports can also be run programmatically via REST API.
By default, the View Reports page is laid out to provide quick access to:
Favorite Reports
Top Reports
Default Templates
The presentation style for the page can be either a Table (default) or Tile view. This can be selected by using the switch at the top right of the page.
