The following table lists the fields on the Manage Backup Policies page.

Field Description

Clicking the name takes you to the backup policy page where you can edit backup policy options such as:

The following information is displayed:

  • The days on which the backup policy is configured to run.
  • The period for which the backup policy runs.
  • The configured bandwidth at which the data is backed up.

In addition, it shows the transaction log backup frequency and the bandwidth for log backups if Microsoft SQL Server aware backups under application-aware processing are enabled in the policy. 

Retention Provides information about the period for which Phoenix retains server snapshots.
#Backup Sets/VMs applied to Lists the total number of data sources using the backup policy. For example, in your organization, if five file sources, two databases, and ten virtual machines are configured to use a backup policy, you see the number seventeen under this field. 

Clicking the number takes you to a page that shows the list of backup sets and virtual machines that use the backup policy. 
Note: If a server is hosting files and folders in addition to MS-SQL server databases, the server can have multiple backup sets applied to it. For example, the server has one backup set each for images, videos, and databases. In such a case, the server has three backup sets. This field counts all backup sets in addition to virtual machines that use a backup policy.
