OpsCenter Creating Reports

Hello,

 

I have a customer who is looking for some Assistance on Opscenter Reporting,   I know we do not  offer custom reporting through support,

I thought I would post the customers wishes to see if I have missed a Canned Report that might give what the customer whast they are  looking for

The Symantec Netbackup appliance is almost full and customer needs to  have some report to analyst what kind backup data used the 32 TB appliance, the detail report requirement in below

1) A report that shows the % breakdown each month of the different types of backups – Incremental, Cumulative Incremental, Full and Monthly – in terms of disk usage of the appliance over the last 12 months. Therefore for each month over the last 12 months I would like to know what percentage of the total disk space used is taken up for each type of backup.

2) A report that shows the top 25 clients per month in terms of total data backed up per client per month for the last 12 months. It would be good to know what this total is as a percentage of the total for all clients. This would be one report for each month.

3) The total number of clients per month over the last 12 months. This will let me know how many new servers have been added per month.

 

Thanks

Jerry

Hey Jerry,

I think I may have something here that will work and is simply a modification of an existing report... 

However, this will report all backups and not specifically those that ran to a disk pool.


1) Log into OpsCenter and click on Reports / Report Templates / Job Size

2) Now click Edit Report 
 
- Set your relative timeframe to 12 months.
- Set your time frame group by to 1 'months of year'
- Click Next 
- Set your Report On: Schedule / Level Type
- Set ALL 'Display Unit' drop downs to GB or TB
- Click Next 
 
3) Preview and Save the Report
 
4) Execute the report again, and click on the Historical Tab, and it will show month to month, instead of a pie chart (distribution)
 

Example:

Let me know what you think...

Jerry,

To Answer items 2 and 3 first, 


2) A report that shows the top 25 clients per month in terms of total data backed up per client per month for the last 12 months. It would be good to know what this total is as a percentage of the total for all clients. This would be one report for each month.

Use the "Job Size" Report

     Located under Reports / Report Templates / Backup / Job Activity / Job Size

     Click on the Report Name - Job Size

     You will then need to choose Historical and Set your Date Range using the Customize Option. 

     Please note: Customer must be running Analytics to report over 60 days of history.

     Then click on Edit - and On the Select Parameters Page - set the Time Frame Group to 1 Month

     Click Next, and on the Modify Display Options, set Ranking Chart Properties / Display : 20 (closest option to 25 that is offered)

    Click Next to Preview the Report and Next Again to Save the Report.


3) The total number of clients per month over the last 12 months. This will let me know how many new servers have been added per month.

Use the "Client Count" Report

    Located under Reports / Report Templates / Backup / Job Activity / Client Count

    Again, you will need to Choose Historical after running the report.

    You will then need to choose Historical and Set your Date Range using the Customize Option

    You can again follow the steps from the item 2, to group the results by month, or add filters to only display a certain master, etc... 

    Make sure you save the report, for reference.... 


1) A report that shows the % breakdown each month of the different types of backups – Incremental, Cumulative Incremental, Full and Monthly – in terms of disk usage of the appliance over the last 12 months. Therefore for each month over the last 12 months I would like to know what percentage of the total disk space used is taken up for each type of backup.

This is a bit more involved, and not 100% sure it can be accomplished in 1 single report.

I'll try reviewing this, when I have some cycles - but you can ping me internally as well.
