Configuring Tiered Metrics Reporting on the Command Center


You can configure the local Metrics Reporting Server to forward reporting data to the worldwide Metrics Reporting Server. This configuration results in a tiered reporting structure for environments with multiple CommServe computers.

Important: You must configure data forwarding on the CommServe computer that hosts the local Metrics Reporting Server.

Before You Begin

  • Verify that you have a Worldwide Metrics Reporting Server installed on a separate computer. If you do not have a Worldwide Metrics Reporting Server, then install a Metrics Reporting Server on a separate computer from the Local Metrics Reporting Server. For instructions, see Getting Started with Metrics Reports.

  • All Metrics Reporting Servers that are part of the tiered architecture must be installed with the same Version and Feature Release.

  • If you want to mask, or hide, file paths from report data, before sending data to the Worldwide Metrics Reporting Server, configure masking on each CommServe computer that sends data to the Local Metrics Reporting Serve. For instructions on masking file paths in each CommServe computer, see Masking File Paths in a CommServe Computer.
