In continuation to my previous blog on charting epoch time series MySQL data using PHP. I started exploring generating better reports from the DB.
Inspired by the EMC SRM (M&R) storage capacity reports in PDF format, I thought of doing similar kind of reports “in-house” which should be simple yet standard to be shared with customers. I would like to thank Sapan Kumar from EMC who thought me so many things about EMC’s SRM (M&R) custom reporting features.
We have the data in MySQL DB and wanted to use the PDF module in PHP to generate reports. But which module is suitable and easy to use?
Please find sample reports screenshot produced below for reference. You could see the capacity reports of VNX and VMAX storage arrays.
If interested, please reach out to me to get the PHP code. Thanks for stopping by… Please leave your comments / suggestions.
