Planning Activity > Stored Backup Images > Stored Backup Images > Stored Backup Images on Media

This report shows you the total amount of data in gigabytes that was backed up but has not expired yet for each of the days in the past two weeks. This report shows results only for NetBackup and NetBackup Appliances. The report can now also show trendlines with customized average periods.

Click Show Chart as Table link below the report to view tabular details.

You can also filter the report to show unexpired backed up data for a limited sample set, such as one or more policies, clients, views, or job status. You can use timeframe grouping filter. For example: If you want to view unexpired backup images for the period between 1st Jan 2010 to 1st Feb 2010, in groups each of one week, select 1 Week from the Group by drop-down list. On the report, you can see data in four stacked bars, one per week. Using the Report On parameter, you can select report grouping attribute from the drop-down list, which you want to view the report for. For example: Backup Job Attributes, Backup Image Attributes etc.

The following enhancements have been made in the Stored Backup Images on Media report:

Report Enhancements

The following report enhancements have been made:

  • The report now also shows trendlines with customized average periods.

    The following option has been added:

    Show trendline with moving average period of 3. The value can be 1, 2, 3, 7, 14, or 30. The default value is 3.

    Select Show trendline with moving average checkbox and use the drop-down list to specify the number of data points to factor into the average. At each interval on the graph, the trendline shows a moving average of the most recent data points. Example: 3 displays a trendline that, at each interval, shows the average of the current data point and the two previous data points.

  • Fixed issues of data correctness and parity with VBR.

    Image Expiration time with value NULL is now considered in the report.

Filter Enhancements

The following filter enhancements are listed:

  • The unit Years has been added for Relative Timeframe selection. You can now view data for the last x years. You can also select Year from the top-right corner of the report.
