Report Orientation
Reports are designed to enable views of high-level information, with drill down access to details in sub-reports. See also Icons.
Tables display data in rows and columns, with highlighted links that enable drill down access to additional details. When you click a link, a new report is generated in a new pane with a tab displayed at the top of the Content pane. These detail reports can have their own unit of measure - separate from the parent report settings. For example an Array and Capacity Utilization Summary report shows aggregated data in TiB.When you drill down, it may be more useful to switch to MiB.
Tabular data can be sorted in ascending or descending order by clicking the column headers. Some tables use color to highlight potential problems. For example, the Host Utilization Detail report highlights values when they fall below the availability threshold.
Charts use colored bar graphs and pie charts to enable at-a-glance analysis. Multi-colored bars can be deciphered with a few simple moves of your mouse. Glide your cursor over each colored section of a bar or pie to view a text description of what that portion of the bar/pie represents. For example, in the Job Status Summary report, a single bar will reflect the number of event failures, the number of warnings, and the number of successful backups. In addition, some charts display a trend line graph with data points represented as percentages. If you move your cursor over a particular data point arrow, the performance percentage value will be displayed.
