        Atempo’s products include a tool to generate an AER (Atempo Environment Report) containing logs and information about the software and the system.

        For troubleshooting and/or analysis this AER is needed, it  can be collected on the servers as well as on the agents.

        You can also find how to generate an AER in Miria Administration Guide available on Miria documentation page

        This document describes 3 ways (Web Interface, Classic Admin Console and by script) to generate an AER for Miria and also how to push the AER on Atempo’s FTP.
