This report can also be added to the main Dashboard or a resource-level Summary dashboard as a portlet.
There are a couple of caveats. Only available platforms are listed. Other platforms in the inventory that are not in an available state are not listed. Also, the utilization is based on the most recent live data, not averages or historical values. It provides an immediate look at the platform resources.
Reports can be exported to CSV, which can be used for office systems or further data manipulation.
