The following report enhancements have been made for the Pre vs. Post Deduplication Size 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. This is because the report does not support any futuristic data.

  • The unit Years has been added for Relative Timeframe selection. You can now view data for the last X years. You can also select Year from the top-right corner of the report

  • Drill down reports for following four levels have been added in OpsCenter.

Known Issues:

  • Selecting Report on Storage Unit name in OpsCenter does not result in any data for Symantec PureDisk because Storage Unit is not present in PureDisk .In VBR, jobs data collected from PureDisk puts the storage unit name incorrectly as "SPA".

  • As compared to VBR, the unit of data for Y axis/Y1 axis is one unit lower. For example: Unit GB in VBR matches up with unit MB in OpsCenter. OpsCenter shows the correct data.
