One of the core features of ReportBase is the generation of charts to visualize results of monitoring checks. There is a collection of different chart types supplied by ReportBase to meet different needs.
All these chart types and their appearance are highly adjustable, there is a lot of settings (Chart Properties) to allow for an individual "look and feel" in each chart.
The following table provides some examples for charts that are available in ReportBase. :
|Pie Chart||This is a chart type to display a status, be it actual or as a summary over a time period (availability). It is based on 4 different strings (like OK, Warning, Critical, Unknown)|
It can be used for hosts and services.
The pie chart can also be used to display the status of just one Host/Service ore multiple hosts.

|Ring Chart||The ring chart is used the same way as the pie chart, in fact it is a special form of the pie chart.|

|Multiple Pies Chart||This is a chart to display the status of multiple hosts. It is a subclass of the Pie Chart. For each single host in the list, a single little chart is created and they all are put into one chart.|

|Dial Chart||This is a chart type to visualize a service check, that returns numbers. Even though it could be used for displaying values of a time period (showing the arithmetical average of the values), it normally would be used for the actual status of a service check.|
|Meter Chart||This also is a chart type to visualize a service check, that returns numbers. Even though it could be used for displaying values of a time period (showing the arithmetical average of the values), it normally would be used for the actual status of a service check.|
|Time Series Chart||With a time series the numeric out put of a check can easily be presented as a time series, which allows to see the development of the returned values over a given time period.|
|Thermometer Chart||This is another chart type which is well suited to visualize an actual state of a service check returning numbers.|
There will be more chart types being available in the next releases of ReportBase.
