The way how you perform reporting operations for backup copy jobs and for backup jobs differs but slightly:
- For backup copy jobs in the periodic mode, the process is the same as described in the Backup: Reporting section.
- For backup jobs in the immediate mode, the process differs as described further.
The following list shows the reporting operations and highlights the differences for backup jobs in the immediate mode:
You can view real-time statistics for the whole job if you select the job in the working area of the Jobs node. The whole job report shows general information about the job itself and child jobs — tasks that copy backup jobs added as sources to the backup copy job. You can also view real-time statistics for an individual child job if you select the child job in the working area of the Last 24 Hours or Running node. This statistics shows detailed information about the selected child job including the processed VMs.
You select and view session results for a child job.
The job report shows results for the last job run and does not provide details on child jobs. If you want to get reports once a child job finishes, configure notifications. For more information, see Notification Settings.
You can view session reports only if you configured notifications for a job. In this case, you get reports once a child job finishes. For more information, see Notification Settings.
