To track the efficiency of data protection, you can create backup reports:
- Protected Computers report analyzes the efficiency of computer data protection with Veeam backup agents
- Protected VMs report analyzes the efficiency of VM data protection with Veeam Backup & Replication
Backup reports examine whether managed computers and VMs have backup or replica restore points created within the specified time range (RPO period), and provide information on the completion status of recent backup or replication job sessions. The reports can help you identify computers and VMs that function without a proper protection, and make sure the existing backups or replicas meet established RPO requirements.
In Veeam Availability Console, you can generate backup reports and send them by email to departments. Reports are sent as PDF files attached to report notifications. To automate reporting, you can configure a schedule according to which backup reports will be generated and report notifications will be sent.
To get started with backup reports, keep to the following sequence of steps:
Customize the logo that must be displayed in backup reports, and configure report notifications.
Specify settings of backup reports. When you configure a backup report, you can create a schedule according to which the report must be generated and sent. If you do not schedule backup reports, you will need to generate and send them manually.
View reports, generated manually or by the configured schedule.
