Some components also have a detailed usage report. For more information, see Consumption Data reports.

To view consumption data reports, make sure that:

  • You have installed TrueSight Presentation Server and PATROL Agent version 11.0.
  • To view all reports except the App Visibility and Synthetic Monitor reports, you have installed TrueSight Infrastructure Management Server version 11.0.
  • To view the TrueSight IT Data Analytics report, you have installed TrueSight IT Data Analytics version 11.0.
  • To view the App Visibility and Synthetic Monitor reports, you have installed App Visibility server version 11.0.
  • To view the Event Data Usage, Configuration Item, and Performance Data Usage reports, you have configured at least one Infrastructure Management component on the TrueSight console.
  • To view the TrueSight IT Data Analytics report, you have configured the TrueSight IT Data Analytics component on the TrueSight console.
  • You have one of the following roles to access the usage reports:
    • Super Admin
    • Tenant Admin
    • Administrator

You can generate a usage report to view data until 23:59:59 of the previous day.

For App Visibility and Synthetic Monitor, the usage report displays data according to UTC.

To view the consumption data details

  1. From the TrueSight console, select License Usage>Consumption Data.

  2. Select a tenant from the Tenant list. 
    By default, the All option is selected. If you select All, you can see the consumption data for all tenants.
  3. Perform one of the following actions:

    • Click Date Period and select one of the following options:
      • Last month. This indicates last calendar month. For example, if you run a report on November 5, the report is generated from 1 October to 31 October.
      • Last 3 months. This indicates the last 3 calendar months. For example, if you run a report on November 5, the report is generated from 1 August to 31 October.
      • Last 9 months. This indicates the last 9 calendar months. For example, if you run a report on November 5, the report is generated from 1 February to 31 October.
      • Last 12 months. This indicates the last 12 calendar months. For example, if you run a report on November 5, 2017, the report is generated from 1 October 2016 to 31 October 2017.
        Once you select an option, you can see the applicable start date and the end date below the list box.
    • Select the Start Date button and select a start month and an end month for the report. 
      The report is generated from the first day of the month that you select in the Start Date field, to the last day of the month that you select in the End Date field. Make sure that:
      • In the Start Date field, select the current month or an earlier month.
      • In the End Date field, select the same month as the start date, or a later month. 
  4. Click Generate Report to view the consumption data for the tenant and the months that you selected. The report is displayed for the period for which the data is available. For example, on July 15, you generate a report from July 01 to August 31. The report displays data from July 01 to July 14, because the data from July 15 to August 31 is not yet available.

  5. (Optional) Click the  icon, and click PDF or CSV to export the consumption data to the desired format.
    The PDF and CSV files display all the summary and detail reports that are available for each tenant for the selected time range. If the data for a component is tampered with or damaged, the PDF and CSV files display the following message before the component that has tampered data:

    Warning: Some data on this report might have been manually modified.
    You can see the same message on the Consumption Data page above the component that has tampered data.

The default retention period for the consumption data is 800 days. You can customize the retention period for each component.

To customize the retention period for Events Data, Configuration Item Data, or Performance Data

  1. Open the installation_directory/pw/custom/pronto/conf/pronet.conf file. The file is available on the computer where the TrueSight Infrastructure Management  server is installed.

  2. Make changes according to the following table:

    ComponentProperty to be modified
    Event Data

    pronet.consumption.prune.eventConsRetentionDays=800

    Change 800 to the value that you want.

    Configuration Item Data

    pronet.consumption.prune.ciConsRetentionDays=800

    Change 800 to the value that you want.

    Performance Data

    performance.history.days=800

    Change 800 to the value that you want.


    Note

    The minimum value for this property for all components must be 400 days. If you set a lower value, 400 will be used.

  3. Perform one of the following steps:
    • From the command prompt, run the following command to reload the properties in the pronet.conf file:
      pw jproperties reload
    • From the command prompt, run the following commands to stop and restart the TrueSight Infrastructure Management server:
      1. pw system stop
      2. pw system start

To customize the retention period for IT Data Analytics Data

  1. Open the <ITDA_installed_location>/custom/conf/server/olaengineCustomConfig.properties file. The file is available on the computer where the TrueSight Infrastructure Management  server is installed.
  2. Add the following property and customize its value:
    consumption.based.lic.retention.days=<retention_value_in_number_of_days>
    If the property is already present in the olaengineCustomConfig.properties file, change its value to customize the data retention period.

    Note

    The minimum value for this property must be 400 days. If you set a lower value, 400 will be used.

  3. Restart the TrueSight IT Data Analytics Server.

To customize the retention period for App Visibility Data

  1. Open the portal.properties file located in the following directory on the computer where the TrueSight Infrastructure Management server is installed:

    • Windows
      installationDirectory\portal\properties
    • Linux
      installationDirectory/portal/properties
  2. Add the following property and customize its value:
    license.reporting.retention.time=<number_of_days>
    If the property is already present in the portal.properties file, change its value to customize the data retention period.

    Note

    The minimum value for this property must be 400 days. If you set a lower value, 400 will be used.

  3. After you change the portal.properties file, restart the App Visibility portal service Open link .
    In a high-availability environment, modify the properties files in the following order:
    1. Stop the standby portal service.
    2. Modify the active portal and restart the service.
