Reporting in NetVault Backup

Reporting system overview

The NetVault Backup reporting system provides several canned or predefined reports that gives you quick access to information about your backup system. You can view reports on demand or receive reports by email. The reporting system also lets you export reports to PDF files.

You can use the reporting system in the following ways:

Generate and view reports on demand: You can run and view reports from the View Reports page. The reports are generated in HTML format and the information is typically presented in tables.
Customize report views: After a report is generated, you can modify the table views to include or exclude columns, change the column order, and add column totals and other aggregate values. You can save these settings to the job definition so that the custom format is used every time you run the report.
Use charts in reports: You can add charts to your reports to present the information in visual formats. You can choose bar charts or pie charts.
Use notification events to send reports by email: You can configure user-defined events and set up the email notification method or create user notification profiles to distribute reports by email. The reports can be delivered as email attachments in PDF or HTML format. Default format is PDF.
Schedule reports: You can create report schedules to generate the reports once or on a recurring basis. NetVault Backup lets you distribute the generated reports by email the reports through the notification system.
