The Dashboard page contains system status indicators for the current state of the DR Series system (System State), current hardware state (HW State), current number of system alerts (Number of Alerts), and current number of system events (Number of Events). After backup jobs have run, the DR Series tracks Capacity, Storage Savings, and Throughput on the DR Series dashboard. This information is valuable in understanding the benefits the DR Series.
• Capacity: Used space and free space available in percentage and total (in gibibytes or tebibytes).
• Storage Savings: Total savings in percentage based on time (in minutes), which can be displayed in 1h (one hour — the default), 1d (one day), 5d (five days), 1m (one month), or 1y (one year) durations.
• Throughput: For reads and writes in volume based on time (in minutes), which can be displayed in 1h (one hour — the default), 1d (one day), 5d (five days), 1m (one month), or 1y (one year) durations.
NOTE: Deduplication ratios increase over time, it is not uncommon to see a 2 to 4x reduction (25 to 50% total savings) on the initial backup. As additional full backup jobs complete, the ratios increase. As mentioned previously, backup jobs with 12-week retention average a 15x ratio usually.
