Description

Front End Backup Size

The amount of data in the largest full backup job from each subclient during the specified time period. If no full backup job completed during the specified time period, then it is the amount of data in the largest full backup job from the previous time period. This report calculates the amount of data only in the primary copy.

For VMs, this is the largest guest size in the most recent full backup.

For clients that have both VSA and other agents installed, only the front end size for VSA subclients is displayed.

Jobs that run on a VM are counted only one time, regardless of the number of subclients that were used to back up the virtual machine.

Deconfigured clients are not included in the Front End Terabytes (FET), and a value of 0 appears in the report.

If an agent has multiple backup sets, the backup set with the largest backup size counts towards FET.

Front End Archive Size

The amount of data in all archive jobs from each subclient. This report calculates the amount of data only in the primary copy.

Jobs that run on a VM are counted only one time, regardless of the number of subclients that were used to back up the virtual machine.

If an agent has multiple backup sets, the backup set with the largest backup size counts towards FET.

The following types of data are included:

  • The last backup cycle of each OnePass subclient: The last backup cycle includes the most recent full or synthetic full backup job, and all incremental jobs that ran after the last full or synthetic full job.

  • Any subclient that is configured with OnePass counts towards the capacity calculation (even if archiving rules are not enabled for stub files).

  • All archive jobs for OnePass for Exchange Mailbox.

  • All legal hold jobs.

  • All Object Link jobs.

  • Traditional archiver agents: The total size of all active archive jobs is included in the capacity calculation.

    Virtual server agents: The guest VM size is measured to calculate capacity. For more information, see Virtual Machines in the Capacity Calculation.

Primary App Size

The amount of application data, before compression and deduplication, that was written to primary copies, including aged data and pruned data, during the specified time period. For VMs, the application size is the backup size. For more information, see Size Measures for Virtual Machines.

Protected App Size

The size of application data, before compression and deduplication, of all active jobs, that ran during the specified time period, in all storage policy copies, including aged data and pruned data.

For VMs, the application size is the backup size. For more information, see Size Measures for Virtual Machines.

Media Size

The amount of data that was saved on storage media during the specified time period, including aged and pruned data.

For storage policy copies that have deduplication enabled, the media size for each job is calculated based on the average deduplication ratio of the copy. Where media size = application size * average deduplication ratio per copy.

The average deduplication ratio of a destination copy is calculated by (total size on disk)/(total protected app size) for the destination copy.

Total Protected App Size

The size of application data, before compression and deduplication, of all active jobs, that ran at any time, in all storage policy copies, excluding aged data. For VMs, the application size is the backup size. For more information, see Size Measures for Virtual Machines.

Total Media Size

The amount of all active data that is saved on storage media, including all storage policy copies on all media types, and excluding aged data.

For storage policy copies that have deduplication enabled, the media size for each job is calculated based on the average deduplication ratio of the copy. Where media size = application size * average deduplication ratio per copy.

The average deduplication ratio of a destination copy is calculated by (total size on disk)/(total protected app size) for the destination copy.

Chargeback Details

The Chargeback Details table displays data sizes for each subclient or VM.

Column

Description

Data Source

The CommServe computer.

Time Range

The time when data was collected.

Client

The client computer where data was backed up.

Agent

The type of application data that was backed up.

Instance

If applicable, the instance that is configured on the client computer.

Backup Set

The backup set on the client computer.

Subclient

The data that was backed up.

Storage Policy

The storage policy that is associated with the subclient.

Copy

The type of copy (such as Primary, inline, or snap) that was created for the backed-up data.

Front End Backup Size

The amount of data in the largest full backup job from each subclient during the specified time period. If no full backup job completed during the specified time period, then it is the amount of data in the largest full backup job from the previous time period. This report calculates the amount of data only in the primary copy.

For VMs, this is the largest guest size in the most recent full backup.

For clients that have both VSA and other agents installed, only the front end size for VSA subclients is displayed.

Jobs that run on a VM are counted only one time, regardless of the number of subclients that were used to back up the virtual machine.

Deconfigured clients are not included in the Front End Terabytes (FET), and a value of 0 appears in the report.

If an agent has multiple backup sets, the backup set with the largest backup size counts towards FET.

Front End Archive Size

The amount of data in all archive jobs from each subclient. This report calculates the amount of data only in the primary copy.

Jobs that run on a VM are counted only one time, regardless of the number of subclients that were used to back up the virtual machine.

If an agent has multiple backup sets, the backup set with the largest backup size counts towards FET.

The following types of data are included:

Protected App Size

The size of application data, before compression and deduplication, of all active jobs, that ran during the specified time period, in all storage policy copies, including aged data and pruned data.

For VMs, the application size is the backup size. For more information, see Size Measures for Virtual Machines.

Media Size

The amount of data that was saved on storage media during the specified time period, including aged and pruned data.

For storage policy copies that have deduplication enabled, the media size for each job is calculated based on the average deduplication ratio of the copy. Where media size = application size * average deduplication ratio per copy.

The average deduplication ratio of a destination copy is calculated by (total size on disk)/(total protected app size) for the destination copy.

Total Protected App Size

Total Media Size

The amount of all active data that is saved on storage media, including all storage policy copies on all media types, and excluding aged data.

For storage policy copies that have deduplication enabled, the media size for each job is calculated based on the average deduplication ratio of the copy. Where media size = application size * average deduplication ratio per copy.

The average deduplication ratio of a destination copy is calculated by (total size on disk)/(total protected app size) for the destination copy.
