    Article Summary

    New Data Pipeline

    This article covers this report as you see it from the new data pipeline. Some features described are visible only when viewing the new report format. For details, visit VDI and DaaS Reports.
    You can view On-Premises reports and Top Insights reports only in legacy format.
    The Machine Trends report shows historical information about resource consumption trends for monitored machines by summarizing performance metrics for different machines during the selected time period. By default, the selected time period is the previous 24 hours.

    Use the report to answer questions such as:

    • What was the average CPU utilization in the server farm this morning?
    • Which machines had the highest GPU utilization last week?
    • What was the peak I/O utilization of SERVER05 yesterday?
    • Which process caused irregular RAM consumption on the file server?

    Insights Reports
    If you use Insights, the data is the same as what’s described here but we recommend you view reports in Solve or app.control.com.

    Report Functionality

    The report provides the following functionalities:

    • Displays data in two views:
      • By folder. View data for all managed machines in a specific ControlUp folder. By default, the report displays machine trend data for your entire organization.
      • By machine. View data for a specific managed machine(s).
    • You can click a data point in the charts to view the minimum, average, and maximum values for each data series, the number of instances the metric is based on, machine utilization range (%), and the machine or process names of the top consumers.
    • You can toggle between the Top Consumers list and the Distribution graph (Machine Utilization Range) for each data point, and view values for earlier or later data points by clicking the arrows next to the timestamp, see below.
    • You can click a process name to view the App Trends report of the process on the selected machine(s).
    • You can click a data series name on the bottom of the chart to highlight or toggle the series on the charts.

    The report displays the following charts:

    CPU Utilization

    Use the CPU Utilization widget to monitor average CPU usage. The chart displays data measuring the percentage of total server CPU capacity in use. CPU usage data can help you optimize the performance of your system by identifying potential resource bottlenecks and ensuring that your CPU is used efficiently.

    For example, clicking a specific data point on the CPU Utilization chart shows that two machine instances consumed 99% of the selected folder's CPU:
    CPUUtilSolve

    GPU Utilization

    New Chart

    GPU Utilization is a new chart added to this data pipeline report.

    Use the GPU Utilization widget to monitor average GPU usage. The chart displays data measuring the percentage of total server GPU capacity in use, including GPU video decoder usage, GPU video encoder usage, and NVIDIA frame buffer usage. GPU usage data can help you optimize the performance of graphics cards in your system by showing how much GPU individual running machines or processes are using. If you select the folder view, the chart displays data from all managed machines with and without GPU.

    Memory Utilization

    Use the Memory Utilization widget to monitor average RAM usage. The chart displays data measuring the percentage of total RAM capacity in use. Memory usage data can help you optimize the performance of your system by showing how much RAM individual running machines or processes are using.

    Disk I/O Utilization

    Use the Disk I/O Utilization widget to monitor average disk I/O usage. The chart displays data measuring the total I/O operations per second generated by processes. Disk I/O usage data can help you optimize the performance of your system by showing the rate that individual running machines or processes are generating I/O operations.

    Network Usage

    Use the Network Usage widget to monitor average network usage. The chart displays data measuring the total sent and received KB per second generated by processes. Network usage data can help you optimize the performance of your system by showing the rate that individual running machines or processes are sending and receiving data.

    User Sessions

    Use the User Sessions widget to monitor user sessions. The chart displays data measuring the total number of sessions established by machines. Session data can help you optimize the performance of your system by showing the amount of user sessions each machine established.
