    In version 11.2:
    Step 1: Prepare reports working on collector
    Step 2: Functoriality Distributed Report Builder (based on report from Step 1). To execute report on whole env
    Step 3: Alert Builder for scheduled process and indicate reviewers

    Hi Panendar,

    The options I see and we use here at my corporation: 

    1. For the information/reports you need from the collectors, as Miroslaw shared, in most cases you can just create a Distributed Report from the CM.
    2. There are also alerts that if you setup it will come from the respective appliance it's alerting for (E.g., if there is any disk space consumption alerts, any of the regular jobs Data Archive, Data Import, ... that failed, etc).
    3. You also have the Dashboards (Health ones in particular) from the CM you can check the overall health of the environment to the managed units within the same architecture.
    4. You have the flexibility to create a Dashboard in Guardium and combine different reports/charts you wish to see into the same screen/dashboard.
    4.1 Another option but not desirable is to create your own dashboard (out of Guardium) where you combine the information/reports you wish to look as a HC on a daily basis. We've got this one created here but you may need someone that knows programming and it may require some maintenance.

    I hope that helps.

    There are quite a few views already built in at the Central Manager.
    Go to Manage > System View and look through the ones delivered. 
    S-TAP and GIM Dashboard was one of my favorites as well as the the Deployment Health Table.
    If you click on the top right sliders you can adjust the settings you are interested in (or not) as well as time traffic time period and exclusion list.
