Database Log Protection History
This report provides historical overview of all database log backup jobs. It also includes the list of protected and unprotected databases for each virtual and physical machine. The report helps you ensure that critical databases are properly protected and that transaction logs for these databases have been successfully backed up.
A database is considered to be Protected if it was backed up at least once during the last backup job session. A database is considered to be Unprotected if it was not backed up during the last backup job session.
- The Summary section shows the number of configured backup jobs, the total number of VMs and computers included in these jobs, number of processed application servers and clusters, and the total number of hosted databases. Also the section includes the following elements:
- The Databases by Protection State subsections show the number of protected and unprotected databases and databases excluded from processing.
- The SLA chart shows how many log backup intervals within the specified RPO period completed with successful log shipment (in percentage).
- The Job Sessions by Status chart shows results of job sessions.
- The Details table provides additional information on the efficiency of executed jobs, number of protected, unprotected and excluded databases, number of missed intervals, actual difference between configured log backup interval and time actually required for log backup, and number of secondary target job sessions finished successfully, finished with warnings and finished with errors.

- Primary job type: defines the types of jobs that can be selected to include in the report (VM backup, Agent backup, Agent backup policy, Application backup policy).
- Backup jobs: defines a list of backup jobs to include in the report. Note that the report will include information on Oracle backup jobs only for Veeam Backup & Replication servers version 11 or later.

A database is a software component that is mission critical for a modern enterprise. The role of database management is constantly expanding, that is why you need to be sure that your databases are safely protected.
The report allows you to track historical statistics for SQL and Oracle backup jobs, ensure that the configured jobs allow you to meet the desired SLA requirements.
