Information covered

Purpose

Monitor the storage statistics of Vmware machine backup.

Description

Navigate to ‘Statistics’ > 'Storage Insights' > ‘VMware’ to view the storage statistics of backed-up VMware machines. The ‘VMware’ tab of the ‘Backup Statistics’ section below offers storage insight at the individual machine level. 

Backup Statistics

The backup statistics lists every backed-up VMware server, along with its total storage utilization and the number of virtual machines backed up from the server. Click next to a server name to view the storage statistics of individual VMs in that server.

The backup statistics information lists the following parameters for every VM in that server:

Hostname - The default or assigned name of the virtual machine.

Data Size - Displays the actual storage space utilization, which is far less than the original VM size. The BMR device employs the de-duplication mechanism and compression in the backend to optimize the storage space.

File restore - Displays either highlighted or unhighlighted checkmark, to indicate whether or not it has a mounted file restore session. 

Virtualization - Displays either highlighted or unhighlighted checkmark, to indicate whether or not the machine has a mounted virtual instance. 

Cloud replication - Displays either highlighted or unhighlighted checkmark, to indicate whether or not the backup of the machine is enabled for cloud replication. 

Click  corresponding to the log of a virtual machine to view and manage its recovery point.
