This article explains how to interpret the stats of a backup cycle that are available in the inSyncClient.log

Interpret stats of a backup cycle

For every backup cycle, the corresponding logs are recorded in inSyncClient.logs available at:

  • For Windows:C:\ProgramData\Druva\inSync4\users\<Username>\logs 
  • For Mac: /Users/<username>/Library/Application Support/inSync/logs
  • For Linux: /home/<username>/.inSync/logs

Within the inSyncClient.log, the stats for any backup cycle are available at the last line in the log and appear as shown below:

[2019-10-21 23:48:10,019] [INFO] Finished backup cycle.
[2019-10-21 23:48:10,019] [INFO] Stats for this cycle: storage=9, stats: {'started': 1553235978, 'status': '', 'ignFilesMissed': 0, 'used': 273962902948L, 'filesTotal': 3, 'filesSynced': 3, 'errno': 0, 'bwUsed': 146813, 'ended': 1553237290, 'sizeTotal': 6267429888L, 'filesMissed': 0, 'allocated': 322122547200L, 'bwLimit': 'LAN: 25%,WAN: 25%'}

The table below helps you interpret the stats shown above:
