Default Data Views for the Backup Job Summary Report

The Summary, Details, Failure Reason, and Protected Virtual Machines tables appear in the Backup Job Summary Report by default.

Summary

This table provides information about backup jobs per client.

This table includes descriptions for each of the columns in the Summary table, including the client name, number and type of jobs.

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.

Committed

Number of backup jobs that have been committed. Applies only to virtual server agent backup jobs.

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. For Windows and UNIX File System agents, only files are counted as objects. Folders and directories are not counted as objects.

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 Windows and UNIX File System agents, only files are counted as objects. Folders and directories are not counted as objects.

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 Details table includes up to 10,000 rows of data by default. If you want to see more than 10,000 rows of data, we recommend that you use the Job Summary Report (Web) instead. For more information, see Job Summary Report (Web) Overview.

The following columns are included in the Details table by default.

This table includes descriptions for all of the columns in the Details table.

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 job and the most recent backup job of the same type. For example, the percentage of data between the last full backup and the most recent full 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. For Windows and UNIX File System agents, only files are counted as objects. Folders and directories are not counted as objects.

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 Windows and UNIX File System agents, only files are counted as objects. Folders and directories are not counted as objects.

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

The Protected Virtual Machines table appears in the Details table under each row for a client installed with the Virtual Server Agent (VSA). The table contains information about the virtual machines that were backed up on the client for all VSA types.

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.

This table includes descriptions for each column in the Protected Virtual Machines table.

Column

Description

Machine Name

The name of the virtual machine where the backup job ran.

Host

The name of the computer that hosts the virtual machine.

Agent

The name of the agent where the backup job ran

Status

The status of the backup job, such as Completed, Completed with Errors, or Failed.

Virtual Machine Size

The size of the virtual machine in gigabytes.

Backup Size

The amount of backup data in gigabytes.

Guest Size

The amount of used space in the volumes on the virtual machine.

Start Time

The date and time when the backup job began.

End Time

The date and time when the backup job ended.

VMware Tools/Integration Services

  • For VMware instances, the version of the VMware Tools software that is installed on the virtual machine.
  • For Hyper-V instances, the version of the Integration Services software installed on the virtual machine.

Hardware Version

The type and version of hardware where the virtual machine is installed.

Operating System

The operating system that is installed on the virtual machine.

Backup Type

The type of backup job that ran.

CBT Status

Indicates whether the journal was used to identify data blocks that changed since the last incremental backup.

App Aware Status

The status of app aware backup jobs, if app aware backup jobs ran on the virtual machine.

Transport Mode

The 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.

Owners

The user who owns the virtual machine.
