This command configures how often the switch sends status reports for a collector.
|all||Configures report mode for all report collectors.|
|hostname||Configures report mode based on the host name of the collector.|
|ip_address||Configures report mode based on the IPv4 address of the collector.|
|bootup||Send status report when the switch boots up. The default value is on.|
|on||Specifies that the status reporting is on at bootup.|
|off||Specifies that the status reporting is off at bootup.|
|error-detected||Specifies that a status report is sent when a critical severity event is logged. The default value is off.|
|on||Specifies that error-detected reporting is on.|
|off||Specifies that error-detected reporting is off. This is the default value.|
|daily||Specifies that status reports are sent once a day. The default value is off.|
|on time hour||Specifies the time to send the report. Specifies the hour 0-23. The default value is 0 (12:00AM).|
|off||Specifies that the daily status reports are off. This is the default value.|
This command configures the frequency that the switch sends status reports for a collector. By specifying all, it configures report frequency for all existing collectors; otherwise it configures report frequency for a particular collector specified by the hostname or IP address. If the bootup option is set to on, the switch sends a status report when the switch boots up. If the error-detected option is set to on, the switch sends a status report when a critical severity event is logged. If the daily option is set to on, the switch sends a status report once a day regardless of the switchs' operational status during the last 24 hour period.
Optionally, you can specify the hour that the report is sent. The default hour is 0, and the valid range is 0 to 23, where 0 is 12:00 AM local time and 23 is 11:00 PM local time. You can enable or disable each option (bootup, error-detected or daily) independently. When all three options of a collector are turned off, the switch does not send any status report to that collector even if the report mode of the collector is set to automatic. When a collector is added, the bootup option is set to on, and the error-detected and daily option is set to off.
The following command example configures the report mode on all existing collectors:
configure tech-support collector all report
