Reporting and Analytics
IBM® Control Center Monitor uses the Jasper Reports Library as the reporting engine.
To generate IBM Sterling Control Center Monitor reports, Jasper Reports Library is used to connect with Control Center Monitor database to access and report information about monitored servers.
Jasper Reports Library is part of event processor (EP). When reports are run from web console, data is retrieved from the database, formatted using the Jasper Reports Library and the generated HTML output is displayed in the default Web browser of the computer from where the reports are run.
When reports are run from web console, report output is generated by the controller event processor (CEP) using Jasper Reports Library.
Scheduled report outputs are generated by the controller event processor (CEP) and the report output format choices for scheduled reports are PDF, CSV, XML and HTML.
