The Backup Start Time SLA report displays the total number of backups that began within a specific time range of their scheduled start time.
NOTE: This report can be used only for NetBackup, Backup Exec, and TSM start time SLAs.
Use this report to determine what proportion of backups started at their scheduled time, or were delayed and by how long. If jobs are consistently missing their targeted start times, you may need to investigate the feasibility of your current schedule. A delay could be the result of other jobs taking too long or possibly because there are no drives available. To anticipate delays as a result of drive availability, consider using the Backup Manager Forecasting Reports.
