Viewing performance charts for appliance
You can view the performance of each appliance (AMS or agent). In addition you can compare the performance metrics of each appliance with up to four other appliances that use the same AMS. You can also export these metrics as a CSV file.
You can refresh this page by clicking refresh and view the updated data. The default timeframe is last 24 hours.
To view the performance metrics, you can select the following parameters:
Table: Performance parameters
You can select from several options like Last 1 hour, 6 hours, 12 hours etc. You can view data for the last 30 days at a maximum.
You can check the metrics that you want to see or compare.
Compare with appliances
You can compare with up to four other appliances that use the same AMS. You can search for an appliance or select an appliance from the list.
Color legend for multiple appliances
The colors and legend for different appliances appear on the right so that you can identify the appliance easily on the chart.
The performance metrics are a combination of system metrics like CPU, memory etc. and application variables like NetBackup jobs, Overall NetBackup deduplication ratio. The following metrics are displayed:
Table: Performance metrics
Displays the CPU utilization by the specific appliance for the selected timeframe. You can compare the CPU utilization with four other appliances to assess the performance.
Displays the memory utilization by the appliance for the selected timeframe. You can compare the CPU utilization with four other appliances to assess the performance.
Disk read (MBps)
Displays how much data is read per second by the appliance for the selected timeframe.
Disk write (MBps)
Displays how much data is written per second by the appliance for the selected timeframe.
Displays the network utilization by the specific appliance for the selected timeframe.
Storage utilization (%)
Displays the storage utilization by the specific appliance for the selected timeframe.
NetBackup jobs (#)
Displays active NetBackup jobs for the selected timeframe. This includes all NetBackup jobs like backup, restore, duplication, replication, and so on.
Overall NetBackup deduplication ratio (%)
Displays the ratio at which the deduplication is happening on the selected appliance. This metric applies to completed backup jobs.
The following figure shows a sample view of the performance charts. This depicts the Disk write and Network metrics at different time periods.
You can point your cursor at different points on the chart and view the performance statistics on the tooltip for a specific time.
After the agent or AMS is updated to version 1.2, the performance data is collected after every 10 minutes. Usually you can see a data point after every 10 minutes on the performance chart. However, when the AMS or the agent is updated to version 1.2, performance data that was collected before the update is shown in hourly intervals.
