Reports in dp7

Hi is there any good documentation out there how the reports work. What I am after is a report who tells me Which clients that failed or didn't get backed up during the backup window. Is there any good tools to get better reports out of dp??

 

Sincerely

Re: Reports in dp7

There is no in-depth documentation of the integrated report facility. It is the best to check several reports and see if they include the information you need. You can "preview" them when added to a report group. Just right click on the newly created report.

 

You will usually need:

- list of sessions (general overview on your backup jobs)

- client statistics (refer to success rate)

- report on used media / or extended one

- device flow statistics

 

They are all listed on sessions in timeframe reports. Setup a report group, add reports with correct delivery method (file, SMTP,etc) and schedule report group.

 

Regards,

Sebastian

Re: Reports in dp7

You could go for Data Protector Reporter or Storage Essentials (Backup Manager) if you have some dollars to spend.

Re: Reports in dp7

Hi, to get an idea of the reports you could use the BRICK report... if you need something special which can be scripted, just let me know, maybe we can arrange something.

 

Best regards

Daniel
