PQ50859: FOUR ISSUES DEALING WITH REPORTS IN SITE ANALYZER 3.5
Closed as fixed if next.
1. Report Generator: One option on the Report Generator setup wizard is "Range". The "Select Range" option allows the user to specify ranges like "last week", "last 15 minutes", and so on. The following ranges are incorrect and need to be changed: - "Last 15 minutes" - this one actually processes the last 16 minutes. Increase begin time by 1 minute to correct. - "Last hour" - now does last 61 minutes. Increase begin time by 1 minute correct. - "Last 24 hours" - does last 1441 minutes, 1 more than just 24 hours. Increase begin time by 1 minute to correct. - "Last week" - actually includes 8 days! Decrease end date by 1 day to properly end at 11:59pm on Sunday. - "Last 4 weeks" - now 4 weeks and 1 day. Decrease end date by 1 day to properly end at 11:59pm on Sunday. - The remaining selected ranges are correct. 2. Report Scheduling (dynamic reports published to local). In SA you can schedule a dynamic report to start as soon as it's associated usage analysis (UA) completes. However, when a customer has more than one usage analysis scheduled (in this case, nightly), and then also schedules multiple reports to run against those UA's when they complete, a problem occurs. The first report properly starts upon completion of the first UA. The 2nd report, instead of waiting for the 2nd UA, starts upon completion of the 1st report. All subsequent scheduled reports fail to wait on the associated UA, but instead start when the previous report completes. 3. Report Elements. One of the operations that can be specified in the Report Element Wizard is Sum / by hour of the day. You can then select enough rows of data to return that all 24 hours can then be displayed in the report. Then sort ascending by hour of day. The resulting report element will show all 24 hours that have data from 12 am to 11 pm. What the client is seeing is that this works great for the reports run now, while the SA client is still up. But, if they close the client, then reopen the client and regenerate the report, the report element goes back to 10 rows! I believe the number of rows selection is not kept when the client closes. We need a fix for this also. 4. Report Elements and Reports. For report elements defined to display data (either sum or average) by hour of the day, the reulting data does not include hours that have the value 0 (zero). This makes visual comparisons of report runs more difficult. The hours with zero value should appear in the report.
This APAR describes four different problems found in Site Analyzer 3.5 which are adequately described in the APAR Error Description.Item #1 was fixed in a WSSA.jar patch that is available from the SIte Analyzer Support team. The other three items were not fixed in 3.5, but are not problems found in Site Analyzer 4.0.
