Screen Shot 2015-01-23 at 12.33.40 PM.png

In this case the name is:

     Data Center Inventory Report

Log in as root into UCSD and change directory to:


Find the occurrences of this name:

     grep "Data Center Inventory Report" *

     This will result in 2 files:


Create new files with a new name:


     cp ucs_dc_inventory.xml T1.xml

Update the files:

cat T1.xml



  <Type>UCS Data Center Inventory Report (T1)</Type>










<h2> Data Center Inventory Report (T1)</h2><br>

<h5> <Cloupia:ReportScript> out.print(label); </Cloupia:ReportScript> </h5>





Refresh the screen (browser) and after a little while the new Report should show up.

(The services (shelladmin) could also be re-started to speed this up)

At this point a new report can get generated it should look like this:

Now to the customization part:

Test #1 (adding different Model to my pie Chart)

var totServers = dcServerList.rowCount();

var powerOffServers = dcServerList.rowCountByColumn("Power State", "off", false);

var modelM1 = dcServerList.rowCountByColumn("Model", "N20-B6620-1", false);

var modelM2 = dcServerList.rowCountByColumn("Model", "N20-B6620-2", false);

var modelM3 = dcServerList.rowCountByColumn("Model", "UCSB-B200-M3", false);

var powerOnServers = totServers - powerOffServers;

var serverSet = ValueSet.create();

serverSet.add("Total Servers", totServers);

serverSet.add("Powered On Servers", powerOnServers);

serverSet.add("Model M1", modelM1);

serverSet.add("Model M2", modelM2);

serverSet.add("Model M3", modelM3);

To make the pie chart larger (Doubled the existing numbers):






        htmlFormat.printPieChart(serverSet, "Total Servers vs Powered On Servers");

To create a Bar Graph:


<h4> Section-3.0: Server Model Inventory</h4>

<p class='indent1'>


<TABLE class='none'>

<TR><TD class='none' valign='top' width=400>





        htmlFormat.printBarChart(serverSet, "", "Number of Servers", "Number Server Models");

To add a column to a report turn the true to false:


        dcServerList.columnHide("ID", true);

        dcServerList.columnHide("Account Name", true);

        dcServerList.columnHide("Name", true);

        dcServerList.columnHide("Chassis ID", true);

dcServerList.columnHide("Association", false);

        dcServerList.columnHide("Effective Memory (MB)", true);

        dcServerList.columnHide("Service Profile", true);

        dcServerList.columnHide("Availability", true);

        dcServerList.columnHide("Operation State", true);

       dcServerList.columnHide("Rack ID", true);

       dcServerList.columnHide("Host Node", true);

       dcServerList.columnHide("Hypervisor", true);

       dcServerList.columnHide("Group", true);

Result is a new column in the report:

The following Reports are in the zip file.  These need to be placed into this directory:


[root@localhost tmp]# tar tvf CR-UCSM.tar

-rw-r--r-- root/root     13562 2015-01-24 11:38:33

-rw-r--r-- root/root       242 2015-01-24 08:48:31 CR-UCSM-By-Model-Associated.xml

-rw-r--r-- root/root     11362 2015-01-24 08:46:31

-rw-r--r-- root/root       209 2015-01-24 08:17:29 CR-UCSM-By-Model.xml

-rw-r--r-- root/root     11126 2015-01-24 15:18:21

-rw-r--r-- root/root       221 2015-01-24 14:14:16 CR-UCSM-Interconnect.xml

-rw-r--r-- root/root     11102 2015-01-24 11:46:11

-rw-r--r-- root/root       191 2015-01-24 11:45:03 CR-UCSM-T1.xml

Installation Example:

scp CR-UCSM.tar root@

ssh root@10:95.4.23

cd /opt/infra/inframgr/managedreports/

tar xvf /tmp/CR-UCSM.tar

The result should look like this after browser refresh:

Is there a way to make graphs/reports similar to Summary pages shown in flash? These reports are ugly.

Are talking about the little portlets in the dashboard?


Yes - the dashboard charts and graphs are much more polished and are of the quality that could be presented to executive management. The exported charts and graphs are not of the same quality.
