Backup Job Summary Report - Data Views

Table of Contents

Summary

This table provides information about backup jobs per client.

Column Description
Client Name of the client computer.
Total Jobs Total number of jobs that ran on the client during the specified time.
Completed Number of jobs that completed during the specified time.
Completed with Errors Number of jobs that completed with errors.
Completed with Warnings Number of jobs that completed with warnings.
Killed Number of jobs that were killed.
Unsuccessful Number of jobs that failed.
Running Number of jobs that were running at the time of the report.
Delayed Number of jobs that were in a status such as Waiting, Pending, Queued, or Suspended at the time of the report.
No Run Number of jobs that are scheduled to run, but did not run. Possible reasons that scheduled jobs do not run include:
  • Activity is disabled on the client
  • Multiple conflicting schedules are set for the job
No Schedule Number of subclients without any backup jobs during the specified time range.
Size of Application (Compression Rate) Total size of all jobs and percentage of compression.
Data Written (Space Saving Percentage) Total amount of data written for all jobs and the percentage of space saved.
Start Time The time at which the first job began.
End Time The time at which the last job ended.
Protected Objects Number of objects included in the backup job.
Failed Objects Number of objects that failed to back up. Files backed up with the Exchange Database agent are not included in this count.

For Virtual Server Agent, the following events can contribute to the failed objects count: log truncation failing; independent disks not supported; physical RDM disks not supported; and metadata collection failing on all volumes for a virtual machine. Depending on the virtualization platform, other failed objects can be counted as noted in the "What Does Not Get Backed Up" section for the agent.

Failed Folders Number of folders that failed to back up.

Details

This table provides information about each backup job on each client that matches the selected criteria. The following columns are included by default.

Column Description
Client Name of the client computer on which the backup job ran.
Agent/Instance Type of agent and name of instance on which the backup job ran.
Backup Set/Subclient Name of the backup set and subclient on which the backup job ran.
Job ID (CommCell) (Status) ID number for the backup job and the status of the backup job.
Type Type of backup. For example: Full, Incremental, Differential.
Scan Type Indicates the type of scan method that is configured for the backup set on which the job ran.
Start Time (Writer Start Time) Date and time at which the backup job began.
End Time or Current Phase (Write End Time) Date and time at which the backup job ended.
Size of Application (Compression Rate) Size of data compressed and the rate at which data was compressed during the backup job. The size of archive index files is not included in the compression rate. The Compression Rate is calculated using the following formula:

Compression Rate = 100*(Uncompressed Data Size – Compressed Data Size)/ Uncompressed Data Size

Data Transferred Total size of data that was transferred from client to media during the backup job. This number will be low if Deduplication is configured on the client.
Data Written (Space Saving Percentage) Amount of data written in kilobytes (KB) and percentage of space saved during the backup job. This includes the size of archive index files.
Data Size Change The percentage of data that changed between the last backup and the most recent backup.
Transfer Time (Current) Amount of time it took to transfer the data from client to media.
Throughput (GB/Hour) (Current) The amount of data backed up per hour during the transfer of data from client to media. The calculation for Throughput is: Size of Application / Transfer Time.
Protected Objects Number of protected objects included in the backup job.
Failed Objects Number of failed objects included in the backup job. Files backed up with the Exchange Database agent are not included in this count.

For Virtual Server Agent, the following events can contribute to the failed objects count: log truncation failing; independent disks not supported; physical RDM disks not supported; and metadata collection failing on all volumes for a virtual machine. Depending on the virtualization platform, other failed objects can be counted as noted in the "What Does Not Get Backed Up" section for the agent.

Failed Folders Number of failed folders included in the backup job.

Failure Reason

This section appears for each job that includes an error. Information includes the following:

  • Job error code
  • Description of the error
  • Source and Process related to the error

Protected Virtual Machines

This section includes a summary of the virtual machines that were backed up on the client and a table with detailed information about each virtual machine. A different table appears for VMware virtual server agents and Hyper-V virtual server agents. For snap backups, VM details appear in all columns, except for the columns that are not applicable, such as Backup Type, Transport Mode, and CBT Status.

VMware Table

Column Description
Machine Name Name of the virtual machine on which the backup job ran.
Proxy A physical computer separate from the host computer on which the iDataAgent is installed. This computer facilitates most of the data movement from the host computer to the backup media. In some cases, this computer may be a virtual machine installed on the host computer. Such computers are referred to as a Proxy Virtual Machine.
Status Status of the backup job.
Virtual Machine Size Size of the virtual machine in gigabytes (GB).
Backup Size Size of the backup job in gigabytes (GB).
Guest Size Amount of used space in the volumes on a virtual machine.
Start Time Date and time at which the backup job began.
End Time Date and time at which the backup job ended.
VMware Tools Version of the VMware Tools software that is installed on the virtual machine.
Hardware Version Type of hardware on which the virtual machine resides.
Operating System Operating system that is installed on the virtual machine.
Backup Type Type of backup job that ran.
Transport Mode Method that was used to transfer backed up data to media. This indicates either the Transport Mode configured for the subclient, or if the subclient is set to Auto, the Transport Mode that was used for this particular backup.
CBT Status Whether the journal was used to identify data blocks that changed since the last incremental backup.
Owners User who owns the virtual machine.

Hyper-V Table

Column Description
Machine Name Name of the virtual machine on which the backup job ran.
Host Name of the host on which virtual machine resides.
Status Status of the backup job.
Virtual Machine Size Size of the virtual machine in gigabytes (GB).
Backup Size Size of the backup job in gigabytes (GB).
Guest Size Amount of used space in the volumes on a virtual machine.
Start Time Date and time at which the backup job began.
End Time Date and time at which the backup job ended.
Integration Services Version of the Integration Services software installed on the virtual machine.
Operating System Version and name of the operating system that is installed on the virtual machine.
Owners User who owns the virtual machine.
