This report analyzes configuration of backup jobs to find VMs that are simultaneously included in several jobs. This helps you reduce backup windows and optimize backup infrastructure operation.
- The VMs with Largest Avg. Transferred Data (GB) and VMs with Largest Processing Time (Minutes) charts show top 5 VMs with the largest amount of transferred backup data and the longest time interval required to produce a VM backup.
- The Details table provides information on the list of backup jobs in which the VM is included, target repository names, the average processing time, the number of restore points created for the VM, the size of backup files and the last time the jobs ran.
The reason why some VMs may appear to be backed up by several jobs at a time can be a lack of coordination between several backup operators or the capability to include logical containers (vApps, resource pools, folders) in backup jobs. Both issues can cause repositories to run out of free space due to excessive duplicated backup files.
The report allows you to assess efficiency of the backup process and decide whether to reconfigure existing backup jobs so that they utilize fewer resources and complete in narrower intervals. This report ensures that all critical VMs are reliably protected while no redundant jobs exist across the backup environment.
You can specify the following report parameters:
- Scope: defines a list of Veeam Backup & Replication servers to include in the report.
- Business View objects: defines Veeam ONE Business View groups to analyze in the report. The parameter options are limited to objects of the Virtual Machine type.
- Job Type: defines a job type that should be evaluated (Backup, Replica, All).
Exclusion Job List: defines a list of backup and replication jobs to exclude from the report.
