RIT ITS Systems Management is
responsible for the generation of real time data, historical data, graphs plus
reports on the capacity, availability and responsiveness of ITS supported
services. This data is used to show ITS systems performance to customers,
support staff and RIT leadership to assist in making technical and
business related decisions. Currently ITS utilizes many commercial off the shelf
(COTS) products to perform these tasks and even though these tools are adequate
for technical and engineering staff use, they lack ability to show system wide
status and performance in a method deliverable to end-users and management.
The goal of this project is to
develop a toolset to allow end-users to create a report containing self-selected
data elements and presenting them in the manner the user sees fit. The project
will extract data from the database and analyze the data using appropriate
statistical libraries and graphing the results against appropriate variables and
publishing the results into a file and/or the web.
