Backup Reporting

To track the efficiency of data protection, you can create backup reports:

  • Protected VMs report analyzes the efficiency of VM data protection with Veeam Backup & Replication and Veeam Backup for Public Clouds.

The report examines whether managed VMs have backup or replica restore points created within the specified time range (RPO period) and whether managed VMs protected by CDP policies are compliant with SLA target.

  • Protected file shares report analyzes the efficiency of file share data protection with Veeam Backup & Replication and Veeam Backup for Public Clouds.

The report examines whether managed file shares have primary or archive restore points created within last 30 days by file share backup jobs, or imported backup files created by file share backup jobs within last 30 days.

  • Protected computers report analyzes the efficiency of computer data protection with Veeam backup agents.

The report examines whether managed computers have backup or replica restore points created within the specified time range (RPO period), and provides information on the completion status of recent backup or replication job sessions.

  • Protected databases report analyzes the efficiency of database data protection with Veeam Backup for Public Clouds.

The report examines whether managed databases have primary or archive restore points created within last 30 days by backup or shapshot jobs.

  • Protected Microsoft 365 objects report analyzes the efficiency of Microsoft 365 object data protection with Veeam Backup for Microsoft 365.

The report examines whether protected Microsoft 365 objects are compliant with SLA target.

The reports can help you identify computers, VMs, file shares, databases and Microsoft 365 objects that function without a proper protection, and make sure the existing backups or replicas meet established RPO requirements.

In Veeam Service Provider Console, you can generate backup reports and send them by email. 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.

To get started with backup reports, keep to the following sequence of steps:

  1. Configure backup report settings.

Specify settings of backup reports. When you configure a backup report, you can create a schedule according to which the report must be generated. If you do not schedule backup reports, you will need to generate them manually.

  1. View backup reports.

View reports generated manually or according to the configured schedule.
