Status & Success Rate > Success Rate > Success Rate - All Attempts report

This report shows success rate as it is aggregated at the attempt ( "try") level. Jobs can be configured for x many attempts before exiting with a status. If for example the attempt setting is two and success is attained on the second attempt, this translates into a 50% attempt rate and 100% job success rate. This metric is only supported for backup applications in which attempt level data is available. A target line is also supported providing for an effective visual presentation on when the target is exceeded. It can be reported on against any view or level within a view along with any of the key backup infrastructure components (backup server, media server) and attributes (policy, policy type, schedule, OS, product, transport type). Filtering is available on all components and attributes. Main use case is long-term historical data on one of the key performance indicators.

Using this option, you can easily compare the actual performance with the target performance.
