The Analyze Resource Pools portlet provides a way to assess planned load on resource pools by directly comparing the projected demand in a staffing profile or Profiles to projected capacity in a resource pool or pools. Figure 4-9. Analyze Resource Pools portlet shows the Analyze Resource Pools portlet.
Key features of the Analyze Resource Pool portlet include:
The blue line represents the total capacity of the resource pool or pools being analyzed
The black line represents the total named capacity of the resource pool or pools being analyzed
Bars on the chart represent resource allocations from staffing profiles by period, which can be split internally by staffing profile or status
The Analyze Resource Pools portlet can be filtered using the parameters described in Table 4-9.
Note: If a staffing profile is completed, future forecast and assignments (those past the finish date of the staffing profile) can be cleared and will not display in the portlet. See Clearing Future Forecast and Assignments for more information.
If large amounts of data are supplied to the portlet, there may be performance problems. Therefore, thresholds for this portlet can be specified in the
server.conf file and default values are provided for optimal performance.
ARP_MAX_RESOURCES: the maximum number of total resources. The default value is 300.
ARP_MAX_RESOURCE_POOLS: the maximum number of total resource pools. The default value is 30.
See the Installation and Administration Guide for more information about editing the
When a threshold is exceeded, the portlet does not display. Instead, a message containing the threshold value and current value that exceeds the threshold appear. To make the portlet display, you can edit the preferences of the portlet so that the threshold is no longer exceeded. Micro Focus does not recommend that you increase the threshold values as this may cause performance problems.
If the amount of data you need to analyze exceeds the thresholds, you can export the data to Microsoft Excel. To export Analyze Resource Pool portlet data to Microsoft Excel, do the following:
Select Open > Resource Management > Data Exports > Analyze Resource Pool.
Set the filter criteria for export.
An additional field is included for the filter criteria: Include Detailed Data. Select this checkbox if you want to get a breakdown of total resource capacity viewed against load by staffing profile (data displayed in the Analyze Resource Pool Breakdown table).
Click Export To Excel.
The date when the snapshot was taken is included in the export.
