Barracuda Reporting Server

Dashboard

  • Last updated on

The Barracuda Reporting Server includes an interactive Dashboard where you can get an overview of issues in one place.

To view the Dashboard, navigate to the BASIC > Dashboard page.

By default, the information on the Dashboard refreshes automatically every 30 minutes, so you can leave the page up and see recent status.

Overview – Device Selection

You can set the connected device for which you want the Dashboard to display reports.

At the top of the BASIC > Dashboard page, make selections in the Overview area.

  • In the first pull-down menu, select the connected device for which you want to see reports.
    Note that devices that are disconnected are still available here, since their data is still available.  
  • In the second pull-down menu, select the time frame for the reports: Last 24 hours, Last 7 days, Last 30 days

By default, All Connected Devices are displayed, showing data from the Last 24 Hours.
