SafeArchive Reports Tutorial
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
Another report is the Archival Unit or AU Detail
Report which you can get to within the Audit
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

how often they would like the system to

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
