Using the Reports
Updated: January 13, 2014
Applies To: Microsoft HPC Pack 2008 R2, Microsoft HPC Pack 2012, Microsoft HPC Pack 2012 R2
In HPC Cluster Manager, you can generate reports for your cluster, and filter those reports to display data that you want to see. You can see an overview report that summarizes important information from all the reports, or you can see one of the individual reports. You can filter node availability or job reports by duration or date. You can also filter job reports by specific users, projects, services, or templates.
The reports display historical, aggregated data from the HPCReporting database. Data for the current day is not available in these reports.
The following list describes the built-in reports in HPC Pack:
Overview: A summary of the five built-in reports.
Cluster Utilization: Core utilization time (allocated to a job) compared to core availability time (available to run a job). Shows trends and comparisons by node group.
Node Availability: Node availability metrics (the percentage of time that a node is Online and reachable). Shows trends and comparisons by node group.
Job Resource Usage: CPU and memory usage compared to job run time. Trends and comparisons can be grouped by users, projects, services, or templates.
Job Throughput: The number of jobs that were Finished, Failed or Canceled. Trends and comparisons can be grouped by users, projects, services, or templates.
Job Turnaround: The amount of time that jobs waited in the queue compared to job run time. Trends and comparisons can be grouped by users, projects, services, or templates.
Pool Usage: Allocated cores compared with guaranteed cores for a selected resource pool or all resource pools.
The Pool Usage report was introduced in HPC Pack 2008 R2 with Service Pack 2. It is not available in previous versions.
To view a report
In Charts and Reports, either click Reports to view an overview report summarizing important information from all the reports, or click one of the individual reports.
In the views pane, for Date Range, click Day, Week, Month, or Custom, and if appropriate, specify a date:
If you selected Day, Week, or Month, click the displayed date or date range and then select from the calendar. If the days in the range that you want are not all shown in bold, data is not available for some of that range—close the calendar and then select a Date Range of Custom instead. (A week is defined as starting on Sunday.)
If you selected a Date Range of Custom, specify a range of dates.
If you are viewing a report for jobs (not Node Availability), you can filter the data that you will view. In the views pane, for Group By, select User, Project, Service, or Template, and then specify the user, project, service, or template that you want a report for.
In the views pane, click View Report.
Click the next page and previous page icons to navigate the report.
