The Job Volume Summary report shows the number of files and amount of data (in KB) that you backed up for a specified time period. While the Data Domain Backup Summary report approaches the data from an “event status” point of view, the Job Volume Summary report presents data from the perspective of “how much” has been backed up, with a focus on determining if your scheduling is balanced.
The true value of this high-level report is its ease of use. At a glance—and with a few mouse clicks—you can ascertain problematic time periods, consumption trends, and scheduling peaks.
Use this procedure to analyze volume usage trends:
1. View the Job Volume Summary Report.
2. Mouse-over a triangle at the top of a bar that indicates a peak usage period.
A pop-up displays the number of files that were backed up for that period.
3. Click anywhere on the bar to launch the Job Summary Report.
In the Job Summary report, pay attention to the data in the following columns: Duration, Written, MBytes/Sec, Exit Code and Job Status. This data gives you an idea of which jobs have over-tasked your storage. Remember that you can sort the report columns to group jobs that took the longest or that failed.
