Sample reports

The following Metrics by DescriptionStatus report shows metrics generated by a single workflow in the full stack provisioning job, Deploy DB Server. This particular report shows counts by hour of the successful and failed workflow activity. To generate this report, you would select a high-level category (in this case, Provision), the Deploy DB Server workflow from Descriptions, and the statuses.


The category, description, and status are the three header fields entered in the Metrics Activity within BMC Atrium Orchestrator Development Studio.

Viewing detailed metrics parameters

In the lower right section of the report, the Detailed metrics parameters show each of the metric context items. Each column name shown in this report is the name of a context item. For the report to display the detailed metrics parameters, you must edit the parameterDetails.jsp file on the configuration distribution peer (CDP), located at AO_Home\tomcat\webapps\baocdp\metrics\business.

To enable the display of the stored detailed metric values

  1. Using a text editor, open the AO_Home\tomcat\webapps\baocdp\metrics\business\parameterDetails.jsp file on the peer that collects the metrics.
  2. Edit the amp:metric-parameter-details output="table" section by adding the line inclusive="true"as shown in the sample below:

    <amp:metric-parameter-details output="table"
  3. Save the AO_Home\tomcat\webapps\baocdp\metrics\business\parameterDetails.jsp file.
