Job History

In this article

    This report provides advanced information on completed backup and replication job sessions, and helps you identify possible performance bottlenecks.

    • The Summary section includes the following elements:
      • The Top 5 Jobs by Average Duration (Hours/Minutes) and Top 5 Jobs by Transferred Data (GB/MB) charts display top 5 jobs in terms of the longest backup duration and the largest amount of transferred data.
      • The Successful Backup Ratio by Day (%) chart displays the percentage of backup and replication job sessions that completed successfully during the reporting period. If a job session finished with warning but a restore point was created successfully, the job will be displayed as successful.
    • The Details table provides information on each performed backup and replication job, including completion status, number of processed objects, backup type, session start time, job duration, processing rate, size of processed data, the amount of transferred data and the total backup size.
