Setting up data collection for Audit reports

Audit reports show how accurately servers are configured in relation to standard configurations in a data center. 

Information in Audit reports is derived from the Audit Job runs in TrueSight Server Automation. Audit Jobs allow you to compare components, servers, or snapshots to determine whether their configurations match a standard configuration. You can base audits on components or server objects. Performing an audit based on components requires you to identify one or more components, servers, or snapshots that act as a master. 

Before you begin

Before you set up Audit Jobs to display data in Audit reports, refer to the following topics in the TrueSight Server Automation documentation:

  • Auditing
  • Snapshot and audit basics

Setting up Audit Jobs

Perform the following tasks to set up the TrueSight Server Automation jobs needed to support Audit reports:

  1. Identify the server configurations that should function as a master. 
    If you are using snapshots as masters, create Snapshot Jobs to take those snapshots. For more information, see  Creating Snapshot Jobs in the TrueSight Server Automation documentation.
  2. Set up Audit Jobs to monitor the configuration of servers or snapshots by comparing them to the master configurations you defined step 1. For more information, see  Creating Audit Jobs  in the TrueSight Server Automation documentation.

Running ETL

Once you have set up Audit Jobs, run ETL to transfer the data to the reports data warehouse.
