Starting from release 8.6 has been released a command line that extract reports in HTML, PDF or CSV format from the TWS database.
It's simply to install and simply to use. You can just untar the package and configure some properties files to point to the database.
The command line comes with some templates to extract the historical data. These templates are properties files where to configures the filters for the jobs, workstation, time interval etc.
DocumentationDocumentation link how to untar the reporcli image. Note: it is important to assign the permission and ownership to a user as explained.
Documentation link how to run the cli with some templates:
After untar the reportcli image, all the templates available are under:
The reportcli.sh (or reportcli.bat ) is under <REPORTCLI_DIR> and can be run directly on a shell (or command prompt) or can be scheduled with a TWS job (classic or dynamic job, respectively with a FTA or a Dynamic Agent).
When you try to run the reportcli.sh (or reportcli.bat) ensure you are logged on the shell with the user which is the owner of the all directories and files. This is user need to be the same user when you'll shedule a job to run the reportcli.sh.
Basically the reports templates available are one for each report type. Note that some reports in the layout contain charts, other only table.
All reports can be extracted to all the output formats (HTML, PDF, CSV) and the output can be sent via email too.
All the key/valued contained on the templates can be overriden passing pairs of key/value on the command line.
Run a custom sql report passing your own query on the fly. It extracts all jobs definitions in a file jobdefinitions.pdf into the /tmp directory.
./reportcli.sh -o /tmp/ -r jobdefinitions -p /opt/IBM/reportcli/reports/templates/sql.properties -k QuerySQL="select JOD_NAME,JOD_TASK_STRING from MDL.JOD_JOB_DEFINITIONS where JOD_NAME like '%FC_CLU%'" -k REPORT_OUTPUT_FORMAT=pdf
Run a job run statistics report:
./reportcli.sh -o /tmp/ -r jobrunstatists -p /opt/IBM/reportcli/reports/templates/jrs.properties -k REPORT_OUTPUT_FORMAT=pdf
An examples of workstation workload summary report:
/opt/IBM/reportcli/reportcli.sh -o /tmp/ -r workloadsummary -p /opt/IBM/reportcli/reports/templates/wws.properties -k REPORT_OUTPUT_FORMAT=pdf

The Tivoli User Community (TUC) is hosting a free webinar this Thursday about SmartCloud Control Desk. Space is limited. Reserve your webinar seat now.
Time: Thursday, April 26, 2012 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM EDT
About the WebinarThe transition to a Smarter Physical Infrastructure is well underway. Within the data center, use of virtualization and cloud technologies is increasing the rate and pace of change. Outside the data center, traditional physical assets are getting embedded with IT components, and are connected via a digital network. Organizations are realizing that delivering business services effectively requires management across smarter resources inside and outside the data center. Traditional siloed and manual approaches are inefficient, and cannot keep up with the rate and pace of change. A new approach is needed.
Introducing IBM SmartCloud Control Desk - a unique new offering that provides integrated management, and analytics-driven ITIL process automation. SmartCloud Control Desk provides a single platform—at a single price point—for managing incidents, problems, service requests, changes, configuration, releases, assets, procurement, service levels and licenses, and includes a service catalog. It is available in a wide range of delivery models, including traditional install, Software-as-a-service, and virtual machine images.
This webinar will cover some of the innovative new features in Control Desk that allow it to "automate ITIL at cloud speed" and extend the management to smarter physical infrastructures.

Performance Analyst is a tool aimed to make performance analysis manageable.
Performance analysis is all about data, I mean, large amount of data. Sometime there might be days of application logs and performance data for us to sort out the reason why it slowed down or even crashed. Other times we might have to figure out what's wrong with the slow database server and queries, given a few hundred mega bytes of database snapshot data. Humans are good at detecting peculiarities and finding out the symptoms of problems, but our eyes are not made for scanning (large amount of) data.
Let the computer do what it does best, so we can focus on what we do best.
