Policy Summary Dashboard report

This report acts as a dashboard of activities that are summarized by your policies. It gives an overview of activities and can be used as a tool to troubleshoot and manage by exception using the drilldown links to other detail reports.

It provides answers for some of the following questions for each policy:

  • What is the total number of jobs?

  • How many jobs were successful?

  • How many jobs were partially successful?

  • How many jobs failed?

The table in this report shows information per policy like policy name and type, job volume in MB, job count, and counts for job exit status. You can also drill down from the job exit status counts in the columns and view individual policy details based on exit status and job policy and type.

There are drilldown reports available from the Total Jobs, Number of Successful Jobs, Number of Partially Successful Jobs, or Number of Failed Jobs columns of the main report. These drilldown reports provide an overview of all jobs for the selected policy name, server, and time frame based on the job status.

These drilldown reports use the run time parameters that are passed from the main report.
