Managing Report Instances
The Cisco Service Control Application Reporter (SCA Reporter) installation includes report templates
for a wide variety of reports, such as:
•
Global, per package, or per subscriber hourly or daily usage volume per service
•
Top server/clients/protocols/web hosts/e-mail senders/newsgroups
•
Top P2P consumers/uploaders/downloaders/protocols
•
Global, package, or subscriber bandwidth per service
Each report instance is based on a report template. You can create, select, duplicate, and delete
report instances in the Templates view of the SCA Reporter. When you select a report instance, its
properties are displayed in the Properties view; you can specify values for the various report
properties. For example, if you want to see global bandwidth per service, you can create a new report
instance from the Templates view. The Properties view allows you to specify the desired service(s),
traffic direction, and time frame (either start/end time or previous number of hours).
The exact procedure for defining a report instance depends on the report template selected. The
example in this chapter is intended as a general guide to the process of creating and defining a new
report instance.

A report instance is added below the report template.
The report instance has the name Global Hourly Aggregated Minutes per Service #1. (If you create
another report instance from this report template, it will be named Global Hourly Aggregated Minutes
per Service #2 , and so on. You can rename report instances.)
The Properties view opens in the bottom right of the SCA Reporter window, displaying the basic report
instance properties.

How to Duplicate an Existing Report Instance

existing report instance. It is faster to duplicate a report instance and then modify the duplicate, rather
than to define the new report instance from scratch.

In the Templates view, right-click a report instance.
A popup menu appears.
