Generating Real-time Comparison Report
You can also generate a real-time comparison report (HTML or Excel) by comparing the result of a simulation run to the real-time data from a server.
To generate the real-time comparison report:
1. After performing a simulation run, click the Realtime Report () icon from the Generate section of the Simulation Control Editor to open the first page of the Realtime Comparison wizard, which is similar to second page of the Import Scenario Data wizard.
Alternatively, you can right-click a result file (*.SRF), then click Simulation Report > Generate Realtime Comparison Report.
2. To establish connection to your server:
a. Specify the server IP address and port number in the respective boxes.
b. Enter the user name and password required to connect to the server.
c. Modify (if required) the start date and end date in the Start Date and End Date boxes by clicking the respective ellipsis button. For details, see Specifying a date.
Data of all the process instances that have been completed in this date range (between start and end date) are retrieved from the server.
d. Click Connect to verify the connection to the server.
3. Click Next to open the second page of the Realtime Comparison wizard, which lists the report type that you can generate.
4. Review the available report type and its description.
5. From the Output section, select the format (HTML or Excel) from the Format drop-down list. Modify (if required) the name of the generated file in the File box.
6. Click Finish to generate the realtime comparison report, which is similar to the comparison report.
