Generating Transport Reports
Transport report generation is supported for transport services on a BTI7800 network and for transport services with BTI7800, MX Series, PTX Series, or QFX Series endpoints over a BTI7000 optical network.
The proNX Service Manager allows the user to generate transport reports in spreadsheet format, and save them to their local drive. There are four transport report types available: Transport Services, Transport Services per Span, Transport Topology, and Transport Cross-Connects.
- From the main menu, choose Tools >Reports >Transport and one of Services, Cross-Connects, Services per Span, Topology.
- Wait while the report generates. The bottom of the GUI
shows "Requesting Report:" followed by the selected report type.
If the report fails to generate, see if Changing the Report Generation Timeout applies to your situation.
- When the report has been generated, the tool automatically
launches your web browser and points it to the location of the report
(report URL) on the PSM Server. Log in using your PSM user
name and password.
The report is stored indefinitely on the server at the location specified by the report URL, and is accessible from any browser. To prevent unauthorized access to this possibly sensitive data, the report location is password protected. If you have generated reports previously, your web browser might have cached your user name and password, and might log in automatically for you.
Your browser might require you to explicitly verify and accept the server certificate before you can have access to the report. This is normal because communication between the browser and the server is through HTTPS.
After logging in, a file download dialog box opens.
- Open or save the report.
