Adding a Custom Report

N.B. This must be performed on the server.

A custom report is a spreadsheet style report with the report collected over a given period of time e.g. a day, week, or month. Up to 16 fields can be added to the report. The report will display data for each field based on the collection period of the server, e.g. a daily report on a server that collects data hourly will have 24 rows of data, with a row per hour.

Profile will print the report in portrait mode if the report has 8 or less fields on it. If there are more than 8 fields it will switch the report to use landscape mode. All custom reports are generated as a PDF document.
