Unusual File Activity Report for Backup Job Anomalies

The Unusual file activity report for backup job anomalies is a preview of unusual job activity in the backup jobs for all clients that are at Feature Release 11.23 or later. You can use this report to track unusual job activity in the backup jobs when the number of created, deleted, or modified files in a backup job changes abruptly from the normal behavior, or when the total backed up root size increases or decreases, in the CommCell environment.

The anomaly thresholds are based on historical activity and machine-learning algorithms to help reduce false positives from typical activity on the file system.

Backup jobs on the client computer are monitored and analyzed to establish a base line of job activities, and alerts and events are sent to the administrator when an abnormal number of file operations is detected.
