CA Spectrum
 reports are grouped into report packs. Each report pack includes predefined reports that provide a specific type of information about your network assets.
Standard report packs include the following types of reports:
  • Alarm
    Alarm reports generate historical information about alarm events for assets in the IT infrastructure. Alarm reports can assess the network health, identify alarm trends, find recurring or cyclical problems, and locate assets with past alarms.
  • Asset
    Asset reports generate information about the inventory of assets in the IT infrastructure, including information about asset port availability and asset firmware versions. Asset reports can be used to determine how vendor products are distributed throughout the infrastructure. You can assess whether they are being used effectively and can identify opportunities for improvement.
  • Availability
    Availability reports provide historical information about uptime and downtime for assets in the IT infrastructure. A Projected-Availability report lets you determine the downtime that assets can sustain before they violate a threshold or SLA.
    Note:
     Consult a 
    CA Spectrum
     Reporting administrator for information about exemptions for planned outages or outages that occur on holidays.
  • Event
    Event reports provide information about 
    CA Spectrum
     events that are generated for 
    CA Spectrum
     models. You can generate event reports for all models or for selected models. You can also generate reports that contain ranked lists of the most frequently occurring events during specific time periods. Event filtering options let you supply event codes to include or exclude from all event reports.
Upgrade reports include the following reports:
  • Legacy Reports
