Exporting Performance Data

Exporting Performance Data

SystemReporter continuously collects its performance data for a registered and running storage system. The data export function allows you to export any relevant data. When performance decreases, the exported performance data can help you locate faults.


The Data Export function of SystemReporter allows performance data to be exported as editable CSV and XML files, facilitating data analysis based on user needs. Performance data can also be exported as non-editable PDF, HTML, and XLS files.


  1. Go to the Create Data Export Task page.

    1. On the top navigation bar of the SystemReporter user interface, click System.
    2. In the left navigation tree, choose Data Export > Data Export.
    3. In the right pane, click Create.

      The Create Data Export Task dialog box is displayed.

  2. Set information about the data export task.

    Set basic information about the data export task. Table 3-10 describes related parameters.

      Possible values are PDF, HTML, XLS, CSV, and XML.

      • A report can be exported in one or more formats.
      • Data exported to PDF, HTML, and XLS files cannot be edited. Data exported to CSV and XML files can be edited.



      Data Granularity

      Data export granularity. This parameter is valid only when Export Format is set to CSV or XML. If you select High-frequency data first, high-frequency data is exported preferentially.


      SystemReporter can collect data at the shortest intervals of 5 seconds as high-frequency data. SystemReporter archives high-frequency data collected within a period as a copy of low-frequency data. High-frequency data features smaller granularity and larger volume. If you select High-frequency data first, it takes a longer time to export data.



    3. Click Finish.

      The Information dialog box is displayed.

    4. Click OK. The data export task is configured successfully.

Follow-up Procedure

    After data is exported, you can view exported data on the Data Export Report list. Select the report that you want to download and click Download to save the file to a folder.


    After downloading reports, you can click Delete to delete unnecessary reports.

  • You can perform operations such as Delete, Modify Basic Information, Modify Object, and Modify Export Parameters on data export tasks.
