All Alert Logic® log management reports can be created and run on an ad-hoc basis. Reports can be accessed via the Alert Logic console and can be exported via PDF or Excel/CSV. The duration of output for ad-hoc reports typically occurs in seconds based on the time frame being reported against. If a report is being run across a long time interval (six months of log data), the output could take several minutes and the product will suggest the report be scheduled.
For secure transfer of reports, it is recommended that a link to the report be emailed versus sending the report as an attachment. This will ensure that the proper user validation occurs.
