Enhanced capabilities in V2.2.0

Netcool/Reporter is an historical event reporting software application with a business intelligence-oriented portal that provides pages, folder and channels, several report development tools, and over 50 canned reports.

At the core of Netcool/Reporter is a Java server and set of applets and drivers to provide database connectivity, scheduling capabilities, report creation, and publishing.

Netcool/Reporter uses OBDC plus native connectivity to databases for reporting coupled with an Apache Web Server and JRun, as the servlet engine, to deliver the reports.

A Report Designer applet is provided which connects to RDBMS standard databases including Oracle, Sybase, and MS-SQL Server, and creates SQL and formatting definition files that are saved on the file system. The Report Designer is a wizard-like interface that allows the SQL query to be constructed from a tab-based approach.

A runtime engine submits the queries and formats the data returned, for display in a browser, or for output into HTML, PDF, CSV, XML, GIF, or JPEG files. In addition to the ability to create ad-hoc reports, a series of Event Summary, Fault Diagnosis, and Operational Performance reports are provided in the distribution, along with a set of Service Level Management quality reports, ready to run as soon as the IBM Tivoli Netcool/OMNIbus Gateway generates data.

In addition to the canned reports described above, there is a set of sample reports built using the Freeform Report Designer tool; these reports use a combination of tables, bar charts, and pie charts. Reports can be run in real time, saved as snapshots, or output as CSV or PDF files.

A set of JSP tag libraries is provided; these tag libraries enable the construction of specialized interaction with the Netcool/Reporter server and are the basis for the two JSP tools used for executing reports via a URL.

The target audience for Netcool/Reporter is any user who needs to generate ad-hoc reports for analyzing the event data generated by Netcool/OMNIbus or who wants to publish and distribute reports to executives within the organization or to IT specialists.
