This IBM Redbooks publication provides an introduction to custom reporting, a feature in Operations Manager. The book describes in detail the commands used to implement and manage custom reports, examples of reports, and reference information for the creation of custom reports within the Operations Manager environment.
In any IT environment today there is a frequent and heavy need for reporting capability. These reports may be for managers or for administrative documentation. As the number of reports increases, so does the complexity of the reporting process. For some time Operations Manager has provided an extensive library of standard reports giving administrators the information they need. However, since no two IT organizations are alike, there are always different reporting needs. An organization may require a report that must have data that in the Operations Manager environment is on multiple reports. Rather than submit multiple reports, it would be more efficient to create a report that has just the data objects desired. the custom reporting feature of Operations Manager 3.4.1 provides such functionality. This functionality is discussed further in this book.
