Scheduled Reports

Static Reports are available in text, CVS (weekly only), and PDF formats and are often used for presentations and reviewing statistics and performance. They have standard timelines, including daily, weekly, monthly, and yearly.Setting-up Scheduled Reports is subdivided into creating Global Report or Individual device report.

Real-time reports

Real-time reports are available via Real-time Dashboards (aka Report Cards) using global unique identifier (GUID) URLs and XML feed formats and often used to see the live status of various Devices and Tasks (for example on a shared screen within a network operations center (NOC),or on an individual smart phone). The information in real-time reports is available for display at a high-level, such as an average aggregated into broad time-lines (day, week, month, year), or if needed, in highly detailed, drill-down views (example, an individual webpage element response time). The interface for setting-up Real-time Dashboards starts with the menu Reports > Live Dashboard and setting-up up the XML feed starts with the menu Reports > XML feed.

Configurable Reports

Configurable reports are customizable and interactive and ideal for investigating information. Of course, there are several ways to set-up Configurable reports depending on the need and goal for the reports.

  • Online Reports (Interactive drill-down reports and graphs)
  • Historical Reports – a listing and access to previous reports

Configurable reports are highly detailed and can be customized to deliver different time-frames (from a single instance of monitoring, to monitoring trends involving millions of monitoring instances over a span of years) as needed, as precisely as by-the-minute. Both Real-time and Configurable reports also have significant drill-down capabilities, including the capability of drilling beyond individual instances of monitoring to specific aspects of individual page element performance (such as, DNS look-up time, download time, SSL time etc…). Trending is also provided around key performance measures, including Response Time and other metrics for Static, Real-time, and Configurable reports. Trend data can be summarized via averaging (example, average response time for all monitoring Agents, for a specific Device) and can also be viewed at a highly detailed level, such as the trend of a specific webpage element’s load time during the course of one day. Each report can be further customized using a variety of Filters. Filters can be applied to specify Report data based on date, time-frame, location of a monitoring Agent, a monitoring success/or a monitoring error, and more. The up, or down status of a Device can also be used to generate a Configurable report. the up, or down status of a report is determined via the Uptime/Downtime Calculation.
Email-formatted reports can be sent daily, weekly, or monthly. A weekly report in an Excel file is also available.

BrowserView and UserView only Reports:

  • Waterfall Charts – interactive graphic of page object render speed in a browser
  • Performance Report – a listing of the top 10% of slowest and fastest rendering page objects
  • “Hosts” Report – a listing of all hosting (including third-party hosts) rendering objects to a page
  • Page Object Render Speed Trend Report – displays individual page object render speeds over time

Userview only reports:

The reports can aggregate information into generalized statistical summaries in the form of graphs and averages. Some users also use the detailed raw data within the XML feed, or CSV formats to develop their own reports. The Technical Support team at Dotcom-Monitor can also provide as-needed customized reports not offered in the standard interface.
