SafeArchive Reports Tutorial
    00:00 / 00:00
    Welcome to the tutorial on running reports in the
    SafeArchive Audit System (SAAS).
    You can access the Report functionalities
    through the Audit Reporting tab. First I’ll show
    what you can do under Audit Report.
    From this page you can access your current
    reports, archived reports, or generate a new
    If you want to see the current report on all the
    network data, you should choose to view the
    current report without filters.
    Then it may prompt you for your SafeArchive
    So here you see the Audit Summary Report
    which includes information on the preservation
    network as well as an AU Summary
    and a Host Summary. I also want to mention
    that at the bottom of the page definitions are
    provided to help users understand what the
    terminology used in the report means in the
    SafeArchive context.
    Another report is the Archival Unit or AU Detail
    Report which you can get to within the Audit
    Summary Report.
    So here you can choose to limit the AUs you
    want to generate a report for. I will generate a
    report for all the AUs and hit okay.
    So here you see information about the AUs
    including polling information, disk usage, and AU
    replicate locations and details.
    You can also access the Host Detail Report
    from within this AU Report,
    so by clicking here the system would prompt
    you for your parameters just like it did for the AU
    So I am going to return to the main Audit Report
    I also want to point out that a current report with
    filters takes you to the screen to set your
    institutions parameters.
    Archived reports are available at the bottom of
    this page. A user would define in their policies
    how often they would like the system to
    automatically generate audit reports which are
    then archived. These archived reports are
    provided in XML making them easily shareable.
    Here at the top of the page you can also easily
    generate a new audit-report by hitting this
    You can also access some reports through the
    Detailed Network Status Data tab.
    Here is where you would manually refresh the
    network data by hitting this Refresh Tables
    button in order to update the network data
    for inclusion in a newly generated report. At the
    bottom of this page you can also access the AU
    or Host Reports.
    One other type of report you can generate in the
    SafeArchive system is the TRAC Audit Report,
    so I will go to Generate TRAC Audit Report.
    And from here you can either view your current
    report or Generate a new TRAC Audit Report by
    hitting this button.
    Now I’ll go in to view this report, so here you can
    see the metadata concerning the generation of
    the report appears at the top.
    You can also jump into any section of the TRAC
    report enabling easy review.
    So this tutorial showed how the SafeArchive
    system allows a user to easily update,
    generate, and view reports dealing with network,
    host, and AU data. It also showed how the
    system allows for users to specify information
    contained within reports through defining
    parameters, as well as the ability to generate
    reports detailing TRAC documentation and
    Thanks for watching!
