Reporting components

In Orion Platform 2020.2.6, the Report Writer tool is removed from the SolarWinds Platform. Migrate the reports to the web and use the web-based reports.

Several components work together to allow for built-in reporting, custom report creation, and report delivery.

  • Report Writer
    • Acts as a framework for report structure
    • Contains the main interface for configuring, creating, and editing reports
    • Runs queries against the SolarWinds Platform database when requested
    • Stores reports
    • Calculate values as required, such as 95th percentile
  • SQL Database - Stores and delivers information for Orion
  • Orion Core - Provides Web Console, report delivery, and other core functions
  • Windows Event Scheduler - Provides regularly scheduled report actions
  • Email - Provides a delivery mechanism for reports
