FR: Export monitoring results to a file of a specific format (HTML, XML, PDF, ...)

Mar 24, 2011 at 2:35 PM

Hi,

to document the monitoring results, I would like to export those results in a human readable way, like into HTML, XML, PDF or plain text files.

Best regards,

Martin

Hi.

I would suggest to export to CSV file so we can manipulate the data with any other application of our choice. By example it would be easy to import it into Excel.

Although I dont see the need for exporting data, it looks to me that many people may need it so there is a big chance of adding it :)

I understand it might be difficult to see the use of exporting data. I would use it at work. What I have in mind is to use this data to pinpoint where I spent most of my time every day, week, month, year. I would use Excel or QlikView to make business intelligence and present the data during meetings. It's a way of improving my processes or/and the ones of a department, as well as showing the tasks of whom I'm forced to do ;)

:) nice. The main goal of this app is more of a personal use so I belive most people will not do such analysis. However if you put things like this I think I'll add it. If the xml is fine for you than it can be quickly avaliable

Today release has the export to xml functionality. In the future you may expect html, pdf files. As for now xml is avaliabe as it was quick to implement for me and is very flexible for everyone.

Thanks for this new feature!

I had a look and it's working fine. Excel is opening the XML file easily. I still need to get read of the unfriendly display of the time data:

PT2M33.1107574S

Unless you are planning to have it displayed differently?

If yes, I would suggest to have the total time you are showing under "TotalUsage" stored in seconds. It is very easy for us to transform it afterwards in hh:mm:ss.

its the time span. 2 minutes 33.11... seconds

.net serializes the TimeSpan in such format. If it's a big problem to read it, I can change it for something else :)
