Risk Analysis > Client Risk Analysis report

Risk Analysis provides reports on the NetBackup Clients at risk for being un-protected or under-protected based on their Recovery Point Objectives (RPO's).

The Client Risk Analysis report identifies the backup clients that have gone without a successful backup for a specified period of time and hence are at risk from a restore standpoint or recoverability standpoint. The "specified period of time" is user- defined along with several other variables for filtering purposes. The report is interpreted as all client or policy combinations that have gone x hours, days, weeks, or months without a successful backup.

The level of granularity is at a client level or policy level and exposes the clients that have multiple backup policies where one of them may repeatedly fail. The primary use case is to show that all clients have been backed up as of the last x hours and all clients have a full backup not more than x days ago. The report also has an "Is Active" filter to include only those that are currently active as well as the capability to count partial successes as success and vice versa.

Figure: Client Risk Analysis report shows a sample view of the Client Risk Analysis report.
