Performance History for Proxies

The report aggregates historical data and shows performance statistics for selected backup proxies across a time range.


The report is based on the concurrent tasks, CPU and memory performance counters. The object picker control for the report scope has a predefined filter which limits selection to Objects of the Veeam Backup Proxy class and Groups that include objects of the Veeam Backup Proxy class.


To run the Performance History for Proxies report, you must have Veeam Management Pack for Microsoft System Center installed.


Data Aggregation: defines the aggregation period (Hourly or Daily).

Date/time Selection: defines the time period to analyze in the report.

Histogram: defines the type of values shown on the x-axis of the chart.

Split into sections by: defines whether the sections will be split by Windows computers, selected groups/objects or by counters.

One chart for: defines the type of an object for which a separate chart will be displayed. The list of available options depends on the Split into sections by value.

Scope: defines a list of Groups or Objects to analyze in the report (by default, the Veeam Backup Proxy Group is selected). The Add Group option returns a Group and all objects that a group contains (with all performance counter instances). The Add Object option returns only the selected object.

Counters: defines collection rules for performance counters to analyze in the report.


For all rules in the Counters list, the report chart will display maximum counter values for the selected aggregation period.
