Viewing container statistics

In the DR Series system GUI, you can view statistics about a selected container. All statistics displayed represent specific information about the backup data, throughput, replication, marker type, and connection type for the selected container. The displayed statistics will vary depending upon the connection type used by the specified container.

To display container statistics for a selected container, complete the following steps.

On the left navigation menu, click Containers, and then select the storage group that contains the container you want to view. (If you are only using the DefaultGroup storage group in your DR Series system, you do not need to select a group.)
In the Backup Data and Throughput panes, click Zoom to select the duration period you want to display.
Capacity — displays a Capacity pane with Status, Capacity, Capacity Used, and Total Images
Client Statistics — displays a Client Statistics pane with Images Ingested, Images Complete, Images Incomplete, Images Restored, Bytes Restored, Image Restore Errors, Image Ingest Errors, Bytes Ingested, Bytes Transferred, and Network Savings.

Displaying container statistics by using the CLI

An alternate method for viewing container statistics is by using the DR Series system CLI command: stats --container --name <container name>

This command shows the following information:

For more information on DR Series system CLI commands, see the DR Series System Command Line Reference Guide.

Managing replications

Managing replications

Guidelines and prerequisites for replication

Refer to the following important notes and guidelines for understanding and using replication in the DR Series system.

TCP Port Configuration—If you plan to perform replication operations across a firewall, the DR Series system replication service requires that the following fixed TCP ports be configured to support replication operations:

— To allow replication storage information to be viewed by a corresponding data management application (DMA), the target DR Series system must reside in the same domain as the source DR Series system in the replication relationship.

Refer to the DR Series System Interoperability Guide for details about the supported system limits for replication per DR Series system model. For a definition of connections and streams, see Streams_vs_Connections.

Version Checking — The DR Series system software includes version checking that limits replication only between other DR Series systems that run the same system software release version. If versions are incompatible, the administrator will be notified by an event, and replication will not continue.
Storage Capacity and Number of Source Systems — Be aware that the storage capacity of the target DR Series system is directly affected by the number of source systems writing to its containers, and also by the amount being written by each of these source systems.
MTU Setting — Primary and secondary replication targets should have the same network maximum transmission unit (MTU) setting. See the topic, “Configuring Network Settings,” for more information about this setting.
