Configuring the number of Web Reports results

To avoid excessive use of memory when displaying Web Reports results on Explore Computers reports, you can configure the MaxReportResults keyword. This keyword sets the maximum number of rows that can be displayed in a web report. Its default value is 1000000. The valid value range of the keyword is 1-4294967295.

When you get the message:
Unable to update data table: server aborted or there was an error processing your request
on the report page and you see the exception:
Too many results returned from computer report. Report execution has been aborted
in the log files, indicating that the number of lines to be displayed exceeds the default value, tune the keyword value by taking into account the type of report, the computer properties, and the resources of the system where Web Reports is running.

You can set this keyword both on Windows and Linux systems where Web Reports is running, by completing the following steps:

On Windows systems:

Run regedit and locate the path HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Wow6432Node\BigFix\Enterprise Server\BESReports.

Create the string value (reg_sz) MaxReportResults and set it to the identified value.
"MaxReportResults"[REG_SZ] = "1000000"

On Linux systems:

Add the MaxReportResults keyword to the [Software\BigFix\Enterprise Server\BESReports] section of the beswebreports.config file and set it to the identified value:
MaxReportResults = 1000000
