This Quick Start Guide will help administrators who are setting up and maintaining Visual KPI Server and Visual KPI Server Manager.
The Visual KPI Server Manager allows you to install the Visual KPI Server, manage your current installation, and upgrade your current instances (Visual KPI websites).
Some things you can do with Visual KPI Server Manager:
- Generate a report for all of your Visual KPI Server instances. Because the report is in a single HTML file, it can easily be shared with others.
- Manage settings for language and locale.
- Manage error logging levels (level of detail) for Visual KPI services, such as alert, Web and domain services.
- Manage the interfaces to databases that will be used to create your KPIs.
- Manage your Visual KPI license key and software upgrades.
