VM CDP SLA Compliance

In this article

    This report analyzes continuous data protection of VMs in your virtual infrastructure. The report examines whether VMs protected by CDP policy are compliant with SLA target.

    • The Summary section includes the following elements:
      • The Average SLA chart shows the average SLA percentage for protected and unprotected VMs.
      • The VMs by Compliance State chart shows the number of VMs that meet the target SLA, VMs that breach the target SLA and VMs that do not have a CDP replica.
      • The VMs by SLA chart shows the SLA value for protected and unprotected VMs.
      • The Session Statistics chart shows number of job sessions for protected and unprotected VMs finished with different statuses.
    • The Details table provides information on all VMs protected by CDP policies, including VM name, CDP policy name, VM location, replica location, RPO, average SLA, maximum delay, number of crash-consistent and application-consistent restore points, status of the last replication session, amount of transferred data, primary bottleneck and date and time of the last successful replication session.

    Click a VM name in the details table to drill down to the detailed information on session statistics and last 100 occurred issues.

    Report Parameters

    You can specify the following report parameters:

    • Infrastructure objects: defines a virtual infrastructure level and its sub-components to analyze in the report.
    • VM folders: defines a list of VMware folders to include in the report (applies to VMware vSphere environments only). VM folders view is an alternate way to present the virtual infrastructure. If VMs in your infrastructure are grouped into folders according to their profile, you can limit the report scope by specifying the necessary folders only.
    • Business View objects: defines Business View groups to analyze in the report. The parameter options are limited to objects of the Virtual Machine type.
    • Period: defines the time period to analyze in the report.
    • VM exclusion rule: defines a list of VMs that should be excluded from the report scope. You can enter VM names explicitly or create a wildcard mask by using the asterisk (*) to replace any number of characters. Multiple entries are separated by comma. Usage example: the following string will exclude machines with the _R&D suffix from appearing in the report: “*_R&D”.
    • Target SLA: defines the target SLA value (in percent).
    • Group by: defines how objects will be grouped in the report (No grouping, CDP Policy, Business View Group, Original Location).
    • Show non-compliant VMs: defines whether VMs not compliant with the target SLA should be included in the report. You can choose to show all non-compliant VMs or only VMs added to CDP policies.

    Note:

    Infrastructure topology view in Veeam ONE and Veeam Backup & Replication must match. Otherwise, Veeam ONE Web Client may show invalid data for Veeam Backup & Replication reports and dashboards.

    Use Case

    This report helps you discover VMs that breach the target SLA or do not have a CDP replica. It provides details on the state of CDP policies so that you can reconfigure current policy settings or include mission critical VMs in CDP policies.
