Generating reports

You can access the reports from the View Reports page. You can run and view reports on demand or create report schedules to automatically generate reports at specified times. NetVault Backup also allows use of events and notification methods to send reports by email or print reports.

2
On the View Reports page, select the report that you want to generate. For information about available predefined reports, see Available reports.
Set the filters that you want to use, and click OK. For more information about filter options, see Setting filters for report.

Setting a favorite report

On View Reports page, you can select any report (s) to mark it as a favorite report to easily access it from the list of predefined reports.

2
On the View Reports page, click the empty star next to the report in the first column that you want to favorite.

The favorite reports are displayed on top of the list in alphabetical order, followed by the remaining reports.

To remove a favorite from the reports list, click a filled-in star next to the report.

Setting filters for report

When you run a canned report that includes any filter conditions, the Set filters for report dialog box is displayed. You can set one or more conditions, based on which the reporting system generates the output. For each filter field that you want to use, you must select the filter operator and specify the comparison value. For example, the following Set filters for report dialog box is displayed for the report- Data Stored By Client.

Relative date: TODAY-n[time variable]
Example: TODAY-7DA
Relative time: NOW-n[timevaribale] or TODAY-n[time variable]
Example: NOW-12HO
State: You can select this check box to compare the field state as opposed to the value it contains. The field state comparison option is designed for advanced users who have a good understanding of the NetVault Backup reporting system.
For example, you can specify the state Unknown to find or exclude records that are not available in one of the tables.
Regexp: You can select this check box to match a regular expression instead of a constant value. The expression can contain text and wildcard characters.
As above: The As above check box is shown when the same filter field is applied to multiple report components. You can select this check box to use the same comparison value that is configured for the preceding field.

After setting the filters, click OK to close the dialog box.

Editing report job definitions

You can edit a report job definition to modify the report schedule or configure user‑defined events for the report. NetVault Backup lets you distribute the generated reports by email or print the reports through the notification system.

2
On the View Reports page, select the report that you want to edit, and click Edit Report.
3
On the Edit Report Job Definition page, configure the following options.

Schedule

You can use this option to run the report at specified times. The scheduling option is useful for generating reports on a regular basis.

 

To configure a report schedule, select an existing Schedule Set, or click Create New, and specify the schedule type and schedule method. For more information, see Creating Schedule Sets.

For scheduled events, make sure that you specify the user-defined event in the Report Completed Event and Report Failure Event field.

Report Completed Event

Specify the event that you want to raise when the job completes successfully.

Report Failure Event

Specify the event that you want to raise when the job fails.

Click Save, and in the Save Report Job dialog box, click OK.
When you save the job, the configured events are added to the Report Job event class. You can use the global notification methods or user notification profiles to receive event notifications when the report is generated. For more information, see Using notification methods to send reports by email or print reports.
