Database Protection History

This report provides historical overview of all database log backup jobs. It also includes the list of protected and unprotected Microsoft SQL Servers and Oracle 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. For details on protecting Microsoft SQL Servers and Oracle databases, see sections Microsoft SQL Server Log Backup and Oracle Log Backup of the Veeam Backup & Replication User Guide.

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 includes the following elements:
    • The Jobs Overview subsection shows the number of configured backup jobs, the total number of VMs included in these jobs, and the total number of hosted databases.
    • The Databases Overview 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.
