About Veritas Usage Insights
Veritas Usage Insights helps you manage your NetBackup deployment more efficiently, spot trends, and plan for the future. With accurate, near real-time reporting, it reveals the total amount of data that is backed up. Usage Insights alerts you if you are close to exceeding your licensed capacity limits. Usage Insights requires Veritas NetBackup 8.1.2 and later.
Usage Insights provides:
Accurate, near real-time reporting of terabytes protected
Usage trends that are shown in a graphical display
Consumption assessments to alert before licensed capacity is exceeded
Easy capacity planning and budgeting
Identification of growth spikes or potential gaps in coverage
For customers who use capacity licensing (NDMP, Limited Edition, or Complete), Usage Insights helps accurately measure capacity usage. This measurement gives total visibility into how each of the protected workloads consumes storage and enables efficient capacity planning. Furthermore, Usage Insights eliminates the need for these customers to provide manual uploads of telemetry data to Veritas by automatically providing the necessary telemetry.
