HID_On-Demand_Reports
You can view a static data set from a narrow context by creating, or generating, an on-demand report template. Use on-demand report templates to investigate and troubleshoot issues. On-demand report templates retrieve data sets from specific sets of items or groups without building a dashboard. To view the same data in different ways, change the view type of the report.

On-Demand Report View Types
On-demand report view types determine the chart format. For options that require aggregation, the system determines the aggregation method. For example, Bits has the counter metric profile type and uses sum. The Rate metric is profiled as type gauge and uses average.
Many view types provide more configuration options, such as Number of Charts on Page and Maximum Number of Charts.
To change the visualization of the data, edit the report and change the view type. The summary table view shows only aggregate metrics. If you change to this view type, the view editor does not remove selected nonaggregate metrics. However, the view shows only the aggregate values. For example, you can you configure a Chart with Multiple Metrics to show the CPU Utilization maximum. When you change the view type to the summary table, the view shows the CPU Utilization average.

Most of the on-demand report views apply business hours filters. Those that do not are noted.
