Job Browser > Tabular Backup Report

This report shows a detailed listing of all the backup activity performed for the specified timeframe. The default timeframe is last two weeks. This report lets you view the status for multiple job attempts (from Job Attempt Count and Status Code columns). This report also lets you know the time it takes for backup or restore operations to complete (from the Job Duration column). It thus helps you to quickly identify details about the backup or restore jobs that take the maximum time.

You can also drill down from the Job Primary ID column in the report to know the skip file details that are associated with the job. Only some jobs may have skipped files associated with them. For jobs that do not have any skipped files, the drill-down report is either blank or shows hyphens.

Figure: Tabular Backup Report shows a sample view of the Tabular Backup Report.

The following enhancements have been made in the Tabular Backup report:

Report Enhancements

The following report enhancements have been made:

  • Each Job primary ID is now a link. You can drill down from the Job Primary ID column to know the skipped file details for a job.

  • The report now displays the seconds in Job End Time, Job Start Time, and Expiration Time columns like 9:40:37 A.M. Earlier the report used to display the time in hours and minutes only like 9:40 A.M.

  • The report now shows data for all your views by default. All My Views is the default view when you edit the report.

  • Fixed issues of data correctness and parity with VBR.

Additional Columns

The following new columns are now shown in the report:

  • Product

    This column shows the product that is associated with the job like Symantec NetBackup, Symantec NetBackup Master Appliance.

  • Job Directory

    Path that is backed up by a job.

  • Policy Keyword

    Policy keyword that is associated with the job

  • Storage Unit Name

    Name of the storage unit that is associated with the job

  • Attempt Start Time

    Shows the start date and time for the specific job attempt. A job may require multiple attempts or retries due to resources not being available etc. Ensure that the report always shows the Attempt Start Time column. In case you remove Attempt Start Time column, the report may show duplicate records.

Filter Enhancements

The following filter enhancements are listed:

  • The unit Years has been added for Relative Timeframe selection. You can now view data for the last x years. You can also see the Years tab on top-right corner of the Tabular Backup Report.

  • 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.

  • The following columns have been removed for the Job filter:

    • Agent Server

    • Job State

  • 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.

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

  • Job Transport Type column has been added to the Job filter. For example, you can view report data for jobs for which the Job transport type is FT or LAN.
