This is an example of the creation of a simple Ad Hoc report that will display a single QOS metric for a group of devices for a period greater than 1 hour and that allows for a raw data aggregation.


Release : 20.3



Select “New Custom Report”

Define the time range of data that you want to display and the sources you want to display for, along with the Aggregation Type:

Select the QOS source that you will be reporting on:

To change to a line type graph, select the gears icon and select Chart type after selecting Chart from the layout type:

Select the Columns slider and move it to Device Name under the Filters section(generally the same on both versions):

Right click on Sample Time > Change Grouping > set to desired sample points (generally the same on both versions). This is generally going to be set to 'Minute By Day' to eliminate miscalculations of given points:

Click to add Title of View (generally the same on both versions):

Right click on the gears and select to change the Chart Format (generally the same on both versions)… More information on chart formatting can be found here: https://community.jaspersoft.com/wiki/advanced-chart-formatting

Select Advanced > click Add New Property > enter Property and Value > click the check mark to save > Apply (for cabi bundled)

Select Advanced > click the pencil > enter Property and Value > click the pencil to save > Apply (for cabi external)

Turn of the option “Show measure name when only one measure is present” as desired.

Once created you can then save the view, and also create a report from the view. 

Also I can create measures of min and max of the sample values if I want to see that listed:

Once you have measures created for both min and max you can just drag and drop them onto the chart.
