Objective:

To have a daily backup success rate report for the current month through OpsCenter custom query

Limitations with available report templates:
 

 

The available report templates either have partial successful job accounted as failures or are listed separately, they can however be excluded but then its brings down the success rate. Reports to the management should be precise and must not include much technical detailed information.wink, Just present them with only success & failure.

Requirement:

 
  1. Include partial successful jobs into successful list
  2. Ability to add any other status code which occurs out of scope of backup team's job profile [ eg: Status 71,73 ] as successful jobs...

Welcome to the second installation of the DRT Dozen.

1)       Another dirty secret of DR plans – too many of them ignore or underestimate the importance of security. A recent SANS Institute (www.sans.org) report provided some key recommendations for how to implement security successfully.  Starting from an approach of Layered Security – it is a defensive strategy that uses multiple technologies to block access.  The key is to understand that security isn’t just antivirus; in fact, antivirus isn’t even the first layer.

Antivirus: Polymorphic code (changes in the executable), and Hueristics (identifies hostile behavior...

        If you're using NetBackup, I highly suggest using OpsCenter for your reporting and troubleshooting needs.  It's a great tool and is very rich in its features.  I've written a few SQL queries to find and process information I need in the backups, but I've found the SQL report to be somewhat buggy when there's more than one page of output.  That being said, there are always things that I want to do that OpsCenter won't do for me, and one of those happens to be finding out the Policy information for a given client, and correllating the data from actual backup times with the backup windows.  

        Confused already?  Let me explain.  I have clients that want to know information about their backup schedules.  They ask what the backup windows are when they mean to ask "When are the backups running so I can avoid doing [hard-disk-hitting work] during that time?"  ...

Maybe it's symantecs but the VERITAS is this is not the OpenVision that was NetBackup in the day. If you are a person of Axxion then you may appreciate this announcement concerning the link below.

Global Source-side Deduplication:

The following are the methods of deduplication supported:

          Intelligent deduplication of files

  • Dedupe the entire file for the very first time, that is the very first backup revision of the file will be deduped.
  • If the file changes, then the backup modality automatically switches to “delta mode” from “dedupe mode” for that file, that is, delta will be applied from second revision of the backup file on a particular computer.

           Content aware deduplication of PST

  • Global single instancing (SIS) of the attachments is achieved using content aware deduplication of PST.
  • This feature helps in improving the network usage and optimizes the storage requirements.
