Proxy Servers Overview

In this article

    The summary dashboard for the Proxies node provides a configuration overview and performance analysis for VM proxies and file proxies managed by a backup server.

    This dashboard can help you detect configuration inefficiencies in your data protection infrastructure. If the same proxy server appears to process a great number of disks, transfer the greatest amount of backup data and use the largest backup window, you may need to re-balance the processing load across your backup proxies. The charts may also help you reveal 'lazy' proxies that you may decide to decommission.

    Proxy Servers Overview

    The section shows the breakdown of backup proxies by the proxy type (VM Proxies, File Proxies, CDP Proxies).

    Top VM Proxy Servers by Transferred Data

    The chart shows 5 backup proxies that transferred the greatest amount of backup data to the target destination (backup repository or replica datastore/volume) over the past 7 days.

    For every backup proxy, the chart shows the total amount of data that the proxy transferred over the network after the source-side deduplication and compression. The chart can help you detect backup proxies that transfer the greatest amount of backup data and estimate the load that backup and replication jobs impose on the network.

    Top File Proxy Servers by Transferred Data

    The chart shows 5 file proxies that transferred the greatest amount of backup data to the target destination (backup repository) over the last 7 days.

    For every backup proxy, the chart shows the total amount of data that the proxy transferred over the network after the source-side deduplication and compression. The chart can help you detect backup proxies that transfer the greatest amount of backup data and estimate the load that file backup jobs impose on the network.

    Top CDP Proxy Servers by Transferred Data

    The chart shows 5 CDP proxies that transferred the greatest amount of VM data to the target host over the last 7 days.

    For every proxy, the chart shows the total amount of data that the proxy transferred over the network after the source-side deduplication and compression. The chart can help you detect proxies that transfer the greatest amount of data and estimate the load that CDP sessions impose on the network.
