Data Retention Forecast and Compliance Report

Summary

This table provides information about each storage policy, including copies, media, and estimated aging dates for data. There is a separate table for each storage policy.

Column Description
Storage Policy Name of the Storage Policy.
Storage Policy Copy Name of the Storage Policy Copy.
SIDB Store Name (SIDB Storage - Estimated Recycle Date) Deduplication database name and the date when pruning will be performed on the deduplication database.
Media (Media - Estimated Recycle Date) Media name and the date when the pruning will be performed on the Media
Job ID (Status) Job ID and the status of the job, such as Completed, Failed, or Pending.
Backup Job Type Backup job type, such as Full or Incremental.
File Type Type of information backed up, such as DATA.
Client Name of the client.
Agent/Instance Name of the agent and instance.
Backup Set/Subclient Name of the backup set and subclient.
Start Time Start time of the backup job.
Estimated Aging Date Date when data will be aged.
Reason for Not Aging Reason that data was not aged, if applicable.
Cycle Number (Full Cycle/Sequence Number) Backup cycle number.

Full cycle is the number of full backup jobs run on a subclient. Sequence number is the job number in that cycle. For example,  if Job 123 is the 12th full job run for a particular subclient on a storage policy copy and is the first job in cycle number 12, then the Cycle Number will be 1(12/1).

For more information on Retention Cycles, see Data Aging - Overview.

Required By Jobs Job id of very first job in a cycle that met the basic retention criteria

Disk Media Summary

This table provides data retention information about each disk library.

The size of the disk to free up/keep parameters will be accurate for non-deduplicated data. For deduplication-enabled storage policies, the size might differ because for deduplicated data, the data from the disk is pruned at the data block level and not from the job level. For more information on how data aging works with deduplication, see Data Aging for Deduplication.

Column Description
SIDB Store Name Name of the SIDB store associated with the storage policy.
Library Name of the library associated with the storage policy.
Storage Policy/Copy Name Name of the storage policy and storage policy copy.
Media Name of the media associated with the SIDB store.
Space to Free (GB) Amount of space that needs to be freed.
Space to Keep (GB) Amount of space that needs to be maintained.
Application Size to Free (GB) Size of application data that needs to be freed.
Delay Reason for physical space cleanup Reason for delaying physical space cleanup, if applicable.

Non-Disk Media Summary

This table provides data retention information about each non-disk library.

Column Description
Library Name of the library.
Media Location Location of the non-disk media.
Media Name or identifier for the media.
Storage Policy/Copy Name Name of the storage policy and copy associated with the media.
Estimated Aging Date Estimated date for aging data.
Space to Free (GB) Amount of space that needs to be freed.
Space to Keep (GB) Amount of space that needs to be maintained.
