1.1) Search filter - Use a common denominator to search all elements on the system, it is possible to include other customer's element using this filter.

1.2) View filter - Includes all elements for the specified view. For this to work you will need to make sure that the elements (devices and or links) that you want to include in the report should all be assigned to the same view. The name of that view must be entered and selected using the autocomplete dropdown menu (shown in attached image). Normally view filter is preferred over search filter.

1.3) Select the CSV checkbox


2.1) Select "Generate daily report at midnight every day" from the automation dropdown. This will generate the report based on the data for the previous day.

2.2) From address is optional customisation.

2.3) The customer's email address will be entered here. You can enter your address for testing beforehand.


3.1) The name of the report (the rest of items under report settings are optional).


4.1) This indicates the columns that will be shown in the report. When creating the report it does not have any column/data sources. You will need to use (4.3) to add the sources to your report. I suggest adding the Interface Traffic data souce and then use (4.2) to remove the undesired columns.


I would suggest keeping speed, capacity used and utilisation columns and running the report on your side to determine which suits you best. Utilization is the bytes per second of both incoming and outgoing traffic calculated over the defined period (1 day in our case). Capacity used is the percentage value of the "utilisation calculation" divided over the interface speed. If the interface speed is not set correctly the utilisation will not show the correct values, this is why I recommend keeping all three columns in the report.
