Backup Repository Summary

In this article

    Veeam ONE Client offers the following types of summary dashboards for backup repositories:

    Regular Backup Repository Summary

    The regular repository summary dashboard provides overview details, capacity planning information and performance analysis for a chosen backup repository for the last week or month.

    Backup Repository Summary

    Repository Overview

    The section provides the following details:

    • Number of tasks that are currently running on the repository
    • Maximum number of concurrent tasks allowed for the repository
    • Repository type
    • Number of VMs and computers whose data is stored in backups on the repository
    • Cumulative amount of storage space occupied by full VM and computer backups
    • Cumulative amount of storage space occupied by incremental VM and computer backups
    • Cumulative amount of storage space occupied by short-term and long-term file backups

    Capacity Planning

    The section provides the following details:

    • Storage capacity of the repository
    • Amount of free space on the repository
    • Number of days before the repository runs out of free space

    To forecast the value, Veeam ONE uses a trend that is calculated based on historical statistics — it analyzes how fast the amount of free space on the repository was decreasing in the past and uses historical statistics to forecast how soon the repository will run out of space.

    Space Usage

    The chart shows the amount of used storage space against the amount of available space on the repository.

    If free space on the repository is running low, you might need to free up storage space on the repository, revise your backup retention policy, or consider pointing jobs to a scale-out backup repository.

    Backup Window Utilization

    The chart shows the cumulative amount of time that the repository was busy with backup job tasks and backup copy job tasks during the past week or month.

    The chart can help you reveal possible resource bottlenecks on the repository side. If the backup window on the chart is abnormally large, this may evidence that the required I/O operations cannot complete fast enough, and your target is presenting a bottleneck for the whole backup data processing conveyor. To identify performance bottlenecks, you can switch to repository Veeam Backup & Replication Performance Charts.

    Scale-Out Backup Repository Summary

    The scale-out repository summary dashboard provides overview details, capacity planning information and performance analysis for a chosen scale-out backup repository for the last week or month.

    Scale-Out Backup Repository Summary

    Repository Overview

    The section provides the following details:

    • Number of tasks that are currently running on the repository
    • Repository type (Scale-out backup repository)
    • Backup placement policy (as configured in the scale-out repository settings)
    • Number of extents and object storage repositories that make up the scale-out backup repository
    • Number of VMs and computers whose data is stored in backups on the repository
    • Cumulative amount of storage space occupied by full VM and computer backups
    • Cumulative amount of storage space occupied by incremental VM and computer backups
    • Cumulative amount of storage space occupied by short-term and long-term file backups

    Capacity Planning

    The section provides the following details:

    • Storage capacity of the repository
    • Amount of free storage space on the repository
    • Number of days before the repository runs out of free space.

    To forecast the value, Veeam ONE uses a trend that is calculated based on historical statistics — it analyzes how fast the amount of free space on the repository was decreasing in the past and uses historical statistics to forecast how soon the repository will run out of space.

    Space Usage

    The chart shows the amount of used storage space against the amount of available space on the repository.

    If free space on the repository is running low, you might need to free up storage space on the repository, revise your backup retention policy, or consider pointing jobs to another repository.

    Top Extents by Used Space

    The chart shows extents with the greatest amount of used storage space.

    For every extent in the chart, you can see the amount of used storage space against the amount of available space.

    Object Storage Repository Summary

    The object storage repository summary dashboard provides overview details and performance analysis for a chosen object storage repository added as a Capacity Tier for the last week or month.

    Object Storage Repository Summary

    Repository Overview

    The section provides the following details:

    • Repository type
    • Region at which the repository is located
    • Name of bucket or container
    • Cumulative amount of storage space occupied by full VM and computer backups
    • Cumulative amount of storage space occupied by incremental VM and computer backups
    • Backup files archive policy (as configured in the capacity tier settings)
    • Encryption settings (as configured in the capacity tier settings)

    Space Usage

    The chart shows the amount of used storage space against the amount of available space on the repository.

    If free space on the repository is running low, you might need to free up storage space on the repository, revise your backup retention policy, or consider pointing jobs to another repository.

    External Repository Summary

    The external repository summary dashboard provides overview details and performance analysis for a chosen external repository for the last week or month.

    External Repository Summary

    Repository Overview

    The section provides the following details:

    • Repository type (External repository)
    • Region at which the repository is located
    • Name of bucket
    • Number of cloud VMs whose data is stored in backups the repository
    • Cumulative amount of storage space occupied by full cloud VM backups
    • Cumulative amount of storage space occupied by incremental cloud VM backups
    • Encryption settings (as configured in the external repository settings)

    Space Usage

    The chart shows the amount of storage space used by the files on the repository.

    If the space consumed on the repository is running high, you might need to free up storage space on the repository, revise your backup retention policy, or consider using another repository.
