Planning Activity > Scheduled Job > Job Count within Backup Window report

This historical report depicts how many jobs were scheduled and how many jobs have been run within the specified backup window. The report essentially shows the comparison between Scheduled (Future) Job Count and Actual Job Count, during the backup window.

Use this report to determine whether your backup windows are appropriate and are properly used. Click Show Chart as Table link below the report to display report details in a tabular format.

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.
