Emailed Template Report Options
Modified on: Tue, 13 Sep, 2016 at 2:43 PM
For emailed reports, you can review the existing report templates in the C:\Program Files (x86)\PathSolutions\TotalView\MailTemplates directory and find a template that works for your purposes. You can open any of the .HTM files there in your browser and see what the report would look like.
Sending Emailed Reports
Reports can be emailed to users whenever desired or on regular schedules.
To set up a report to be sent, create a text file with a text editor such as Notepad. This file should contain four fields, separated by at least one tab character:
;Email Address Template File Device Interface
;—————- ————————— ———— ———
email@example.com IntMailDetailDaily.txt 192.168.1.1 1
firstname.lastname@example.org IntMailSummaryDaily.txt 192.168.6.12 14
email@example.com SystemMailDaily.txt / /
The first field is the Email address where the report should be sent.
The second field is the email template file to use to send the report. Templates can be found in the “MailTemplates” subdirectory.
The third field references a monitored device. This field may or may not be required depending on the template used. If a system-wide report is used it does not need a specific device to be referenced and a slash ‘/’ should be used instead.
The fourth field references a specific interface on the specified device. If the report is a system-wide report or a device report no interface needs to be specified and a slash ‘/’ can be used instead.
Save this file with any filename that ends in “.cfg” in the “ReportSend” subdirectory and the report(s) will be sent during the next polling period and the file deleted.
Note: It’s valuable to save this file in an alternate directory first and then copy it to the “ReportSend” directory when you want it to be sent.
Note: This process can be automated via the Windows Task manager to schedule reports to be sent on a regular basis.
Note: All files in the “ReportSend” directory with the extension .cfg will be processed and deleted every poll period.
