Activity Monitor - Consolidated View
My biggest issue with Netbackup, coming from HP Data Protector, is the default Activity Monitor view is job/detail level. If I am backing up a SQL Server that has 40 databases on it, I see a job for each Database and one for the Parent. This means I see 41 entries in Activity Monitor - Wouldn't it be cleaner to have a (+) plus sign next to the Parent job? If my SQL Server backup is perfectly successful, then I should see (1) Job that is Green for Successful. If it is Yellow, I can click on the (+) plus sign to "drill down" to the detail job level view and see what database had an issue.
This leads me to my next point - wouldn't it also be easier for the Monitor to display the name of the Database as well the Server? When monitoring backups, I cannot tell what database is being backed up - I just see the server name.
The goal is - consolidate the Monitor view to a "summary" view - if the Parent and All Child backups (whether this be multiple drive letters, or SQL databases) are all successful, I don't need to see the details - the backup was successful. I could quickly scroll through problem backups and "expand" to gain more information. The norm is for backups to succeed, not fail, therefore summary view by default makes a lot more sense.
