Running and customizing quick reports

Quick reports are predefined, customizable reports. These reports include event data collected from your management servers as well as the client computers that communicate with those servers. Quick reports provide information on events specific to the settings you configure for the report. You can save the report settings so that you can run the same report at a later date, and you can print and save reports.
Quick reports are static; they provide information specific to the time frame you specify for the report. Alternately, you can monitor events in real time using the logs.
