The Job Count within Backup Window report can show if jobs are finishing within a specified backup window. This report is complemented with a graphical drawing of the backup window for a quick analysis. You can quickly determine if all backup activity is occurring within the defined window.
Furthermore, looking at window performance across broad timelines using intelligent averaging is also necessary. Missing a window once or twice doesn't necessarily point to broader systematic problems and thus the averaging context needs to be examined alongside the actual daily context.
