About Rapid Recovery reports

You can generate reports from the Rapid Recovery Core Console. Some of these reports are also available from the Central Management Console.

The reports available are described in the following table.

Table 120. Rapid Recovery reports

Report type

Description

Job report

Provides a basic report on the status of successful jobs, failed jobs, and jobs with errors. Failed jobs can be further viewed in a Failure report.

This job type can be run from the Core Console and from the Central Management Console.

For more information on this report type, see Understanding the Job report.

Job summary report

Provides a more detailed report on the status of successful jobs, failed jobs, and jobs with errors, showing a separate line in the report for each job type, allowing better diagnosis of potential issues.

This job type can be run from the Core Console and from the Central Management Console.

For more information on this report type, see Understanding the Job Summary report.

Failure report

Provides information on failed Core jobs for the specified criteria.

This job type can be run from the Core Console and from the Central Management Console.

For more information on this report type, see Understanding the Failure report.

Summary report

Provides summary information. By default, this set of information includes jobs for all machines—every protected machine, replicated machine and recovery point-only machine in the specified Cores. In the report parameters, you can customize the report. Use the filters to select or exclude some machines. You can also select or exclude jobs that are machine independent, in which case the report shows status for Core jobs only.

This report is not available from the perspective of any single protected machine.

This job type can be run from the Core Console and from the Central Management Console.

The categories of information in this report include Core, license, and repository. The summary report also includes a report on protected machines and the ratio of successful jobs to all jobs. The information is displayed in list, chart, and table form.

For more information on this report type, see Understanding the Summary report.

Repository report

This report type provides you with a report of all repositories on the selected Core or Cores. You can also select any single repository available to the Core. This report is available from the Core Console only, and only from the perspective of the Core.

For more information on this report type, see Understanding the Repository report.

Scheduled report

You can also schedule any of these reports from the Core Console. Scheduling a report causes the report you specify to generate repeatedly on the schedule you define.

Optionally, you can establish email notifications each time a report is generated. For more information about scheduling, modifying, pausing, or deleting reports, see Managing scheduled reports from the Core Console.

Based on the report type and the parameters that you select, you can generate a report on one or more Rapid Recovery Cores or for one or more protected machines.

From the Central Management Console, you can generate a report for any combination of Cores or Core groups configured in that Console.
