Job Activity > Backup Window > Job Count report

This report shows the total number backup jobs in the last two weeks shown by the hour of the day in which each job ends. It also renders a configurable backup window to help quickly identify if a lot of jobs end in or outside of what your backup window is or should be. The report can help you see if there are any hours within the backup window that are under used and whether any load balancing is appropriate.

Deviation from VBR

In OpsCenter, the Job Count report does not include the jobs that were collected during the image data collection. These jobs are called Sparse Jobs. This is unlike the Job Count report in VBR, which also included Sparse Jobs. Because of this change, you may notice a mismatch between the job count on the OpsCenter report and the corresponding VBR report.

Example of filter usage: You may run the Job Count report for a specific policy to view job counts for the specific policy. Further if you are interested in knowing about the job counts for specific products, you can use the Job filter and under Product Type column, select Backup Exec and EMC NetWorker.

The following report enhancements have been made for the Job Count report:

  • The unit Years has been added for Relative Timeframe selection.

    You can now view data for the last x years.

  • The option Next has been removed from the drop-down menu for Relative Timeframe. You now cannot enter a relative timeframe like Next 2 weeks. This is because the report does not support any futuristic data.

  • Symantec Enterprise Vault and CommVault Galaxy have been removed from the list of values for column Product Type under Job filter.

  • The following Report On options have been added under Backup Job Attributes:

    • Job Status (Complete and Partial only)

    • Job Status (Complete only)

  • The Schedule Name column is added under the Schedule filter to filter data by schedule name.

  • UNKNOWN has been added as a value for Policy Type column in the Policy filter. You can now filter report data for policy types that are unknown. In earlier versions of OpsCenter the unknown policy types were shown as blank. Now all static columns like job type, schedule type, policy type, etc. are shown as UNKNOWN like in VBR
