In addition to using the DR Series system GUI to display replication statistics, you can also display statistics for a specific replication container by using the DR Series system CLI stats --replication --name <container name> command to view the following replication container statistics categories:

Container Name (name of the replication container)

Data replication history is also displayed on a file-by-file basis, with a replication timestamp, and other file related information.
