View Storage Consumption by Backup Sets Report

Overview

Storage consumption report lists the Backup Set wise storage consumption details for individual resources in the organization. It gives insights into the status of each storage consumption job run for each resource, based on which you can perform analysis and take corrective actions.

Druva Administrators can view the Storage Consumption by Backup Sets Report depending on their access privileges. If you are a Cloud-derived administrator or a Data Protection Officer, you can view the report of storage consumption activities of your configured workloads. If you are an Organization-derived administrator, you can view the report of backup sets activities of workload specific to the organizations you have access to. If you are a Group-derived administrator, you can view the report of storage consumption activities of workloads related to the administrative groups that you manage.

In addition to that, it provides details of the resources such as administrative group, backup set type, backup content, and backup policy associated with the resources, and the storage consumed by individual resources in your organization.

Procedure

  1. Log in to the Druva Cloud Platform Console. 
  2. Click to access the Global Navigation Panel > Reports > Hybrid Workloads. The Hybrid Workloads Reports page appears. 
  3. Click Storage Consumption by Backup Sets.

The Storage Consumption by Backup Sets page appears. The report provides details of the storage consumption that occurred in the last 30 days.

You can apply filters to the Storage Consumption by Backup Sets Report to fetch storage consumption data details as per your requirements. You can view the generated report, download it, or send it through an email to the intended recipients. You can also download data in the widgets in the CSV, CSV-Summary, and PDF formats. You can sort data in the Backup Activity Details table using single or multiple columns, and rearrange columns in the table as required.

Note: The timestamp recorded for the Storage Consumption by Backup Sets Report (appearing next to the report title) follows the administrator’s time zone. However, the timestamps of the data fetched in the report follow the UTC time zone.

The following table describes the fields of the Storage Consumption by Backup Sets Report

Section Field Description

Summary

Storage Consumed (GB) The storage consumed by all resources in your organizations.

Source + Changes (GB).

The amount of backup data generated at the source for all resources. This includes the initial full backup and the incremental data from all subsequent backups.

Current Source (GB)

 The data size on the source servers, databases, and virtual machines at the time of the last backup.


Deduplication Ratio (X)

The ratio of traditional backup storage usage to Druva storage. This ratio indicates the storage efficiency achieved by Druva storage compared to a traditional D2D2T setup comprising daily incremental, weekly full, monthly full, and yearly full backups based on your specified G-F-S retention policies.

The horizontal bar graph depicts storage consumption for the highest storage consuming five backup sets.

Storage Consumption by Workloads

The pie bar graph depicts the storage consumption for each workload configured in the organizations. For example, Oracle,  VMware, NAS, and so on.
Storage Consumption per Backup Set chart The Storage Consumption per Backup Set table lists storage consumption details for all backup sets of the resources for all workloads configured in the organizations.

Backup Set 

The name of the backup set associated with a workload.

Backup Set Type

The type of the backup set of the resource.

Organization 

The name of the organization in which the workload is configured.

Backup Content

The content rule or the custom content applied to the resource for backup.
For Oracle and MS-SQL Servers, this field displays the number of databases included in the backup.

Backup Policy

The backup policy associated with the resource.

Administrative Group

The name of the administrative group of which the workload is a part of.

Storage (Source Reduction Factor)

The ratio of Source+Change to the Druva storage.

Source + Changes

The amount of backup data generated at the source. This includes the initial full backup and incremental data from all subsequent backups.

Estimated Phoenix Storage

The ratio of "Source+Changes" to Storage. This number is an estimate and it may change with the actual data stored on the cloud.

Current source

The size of the data on the source servers, databases, and virtual machines at the time of the last backup.

Actions

The following table lists the actions that you can perform on this report page.

Action
Description
Add filter Creates filters to display storage consumption by backup sets data based on the filter’s selection.
Sort data Sorts data in the storage consumption by backup sets table using one or more columns.
Rearrange columns Changes the order of the columns in the Backup sets details table.

Add Filter

You can apply filters to the Storage Consumption by Backup Sets Report to fetch backup details as per your requirements. You can view the generated report, download it, or send it through an email to the intended recipients.

Procedure
  1. On the Storage Consumption by Backup Sets Report page, click the filter icon.
    You can define multiple filters based on your requirements. Druva will fetch report data based on the fields’ selection. Click the delete icon to remove filters.
  2. Click Add Filter.

  3. On the Filter dialog, select a field or type the field name in the Column box, and use the filter options to create a combination of filters, and click Apply.
    The Storage Consumption Report page now displays data specific to the filter created. Similarly, you can further create more filters and apply them to display storage consumption details.
    For example, to fetch storage consumption data for an organization, say Default Organization, select the Organization from the filter options, select the Equals option from the Is drop-down list, and select the Default Organization checkbox. Click Apply. The report now displays storage consumption data for the Default Organization organization. 

Sort data 

Use the sort options to sort the report data in a single or multiple columns in ascending or descending order.

Single-column Sort
  • Click the Asc icon.png icon to sort the data values in an ascending or descending order.
  • Click the Desc icon.png icon to disable the sorting option.
Multiple-column Sort

The Apply Multiple-column Sort option allows you to sort report data using more than one column. The report data displays based on the order of columns selected.
For example, you may want to fetch storage consumption data for all backup sets of an Organization. To sort data by the Organization and Backup Sets columns, simply perform the following steps:

  1. In the Storage Consumption per Backup Set table, go to the Organization column and click the more  3 vertical dots.png icon > Apply Multi-Column Sort option.
  2. Click the sort icon in the Backup Set column.
    The table displays sorted report data based on the order of the selected columns.

Rearrange columns

You can change the sequence of the columns in the Storage Consumption by Backup Sets table. Drag a column horizontally and drop it to the required position within the table.
