Overview

This topic provides instructions for viewing jobs, filters, summary, and logs using the Jobs details page.

Jobs

The Jobs page within the Protect > Hyper-V page in the Phoenix Management Console displays a list of all backup, restore, and log request Hyper-V jobs. The Jobs page shows the progress of each Hyper-V job. Job details are available for all jobs where you can see a summary of the job and the logs associated with it.

To access the Hyper-V Jobs page, perform the following tasks:

  1. Log in to the Phoenix Management Console.
  2. On the menu bar, click the drop-down next to All Organizations and select the Organization.
  3. On the menu bar click Protect > Hyper-V.
  4. In the navigation pane on the left, click Jobs. The right pane displays the following data:
    Field Description
    Job ID A unique identification number associated with the job.
    Job Type The type of job operation, such as Backup, Restore, and Log Request.
    VM Name The name of the virtual machine, for which Druva Phoenix initiates the job.
    Start time The time when the job started.
    End time The time when the job ended.
    Status The status of the job. For more information, see Job Status.

Filters

You can filter jobs by Job Type, Job Status, and Started in.
Filters.png

You can filter jobs by the following Job Types:

  • Backup
  • Restore 
  • Log Request

You can filter jobs by Status:

The Status filter allows you to filter jobs based on their statuses.

  • Queued: The triggered jobs that are waiting to be processed.
  • Running: The jobs that are being processed.

  • Successful: The jobs processed without any errors.

  • Successful with errors: The jobs that are processed but have some errors.

  • Failed: The jobs that were not processed successfully.

Note: A failed job is displayed with an error code. Hover on the error code to view the error message. The error code hyperlink redirects to the exact error message description on the documentation portal.

  • Canceled: The jobs that were canceled.

  • Waiting for Retry: The jobs that failed in the previous attempt and waiting to be processed again.

    Note: By default, Druva Phoenix retries a job twice with a ten-minute interval between the two attempts.

    Backup Retry ensures the following:

    • Higher backup success rate, if a backup is failing due to transient issues in your environment. 
    • Optimum utilization of the scheduled window.

    The backup retry for a job is performed only if a job fails. Druva Phoenix does not perform backup retry for jobs that have successfully finished but with errors. 

    An automatic job retry is not triggered for a manually triggered job.

  • Skipped: The jobs that did not start within the scheduled window because another job is in progress.

  • Backup window expired: The list of jobs Druva Phoenix could not complete because the entire data set was not backed up within the specified duration, and a restore point was not created.

You can also filter jobs that Started in:

  • Last 24 hours
  • Last 7 days
  • Last 1 month

The Job ID and the VM Name values are clickable. Clicking the Job ID value for a Hyper-V job takes you to the job details page. Clicking the value in the VM Name column takes you to the Configured VMs details page. 
From the Jobs page within the Protect > Hyper-V page, click the Job ID of the job whose details you want to view. The jobs details page is divided into the Summary tab, and the Logs tab.

Summary

The Summary tab is divided into the following sections:

# Virtual Disk(s) Changed The total number of virtual disks that were changed with respect to the previous backup.
# Virtual Disk(s) Added The total number of virtual disks that were added with respect to the previous backup.
# Virtual Disk(s) Removed The total number of virtual disks that were removed with respect to the previous backup.
Time Taken for Estimation The approximate time taken to scan the data. The time taken for estimation does not include network retry time.

Data Transfer

The Data Transfer section has the following fields:

Field Description
Data Transferred to Cloud The incremental data that is directly uploaded to Cloud after deduplication and compression.
Data Transferred to CloudCache The incremental data that is directly uploaded to CloudCache after deduplication and compression.
Backup Duration The total time taken to upload data to Cloud and CloudCache. Backup duration excludes the estimation time, network retry time, and the waiting for retry time.
Backup Speed The rate at which the source data is scanned for backup.
Bandwidth Consumed The bit rate to transfer data to cloud and CloudCache.

Environment Details

The Environment Details section has the following details:

Field Description
Disk Read Rate The bit rate for reading I/O by the agent. The Disk Read Rate is an average of the total data read and the total time taken to read data at various intervals for all drives where data is distributed. For Hyper-V, the Disk Read Rate is the average value across data store(s) where data is spanning.
# Network Retries The number of network retry attempts made within a job session.
Network Retry Duration The total time spent in network retries. It is cumulative of all network session duration.

Logs

Log files help analyze and troubleshoot issues encountered while performing a task. You can share the logs with Druva Technical Support to aid in issue resolution.

Progress Logs

Displays the progress logs of the job.

Detailed Logs

Logs.png
The Detailed Logs section gives you the option to Request Detail Logs. Detailed logs are available only after the upload job completes. Till then, the Request Detail Logs button remains disabled. The logs are available for download till a certain date and time specified under the Available for download till field. The Requested on field shows you when the request for detailed logs was made.

Upload requested logs

The log files are used to analyze and troubleshoot the issues you might encounter while performing a task. For assistance in resolving the issues, you can share the log files with technical support.

Note Process logs are only available for backup and restore jobs.

Detailed logs for jobs are available for Phoenix agent version 3.4 and later and GovCloud client version 4.0 and later. The detailed logs include the following:

Common logs for Window, Linux, and backup proxy Window logs Linux logs Backup proxy logs
Druva Phoenix Config Window event/Application logs Dmesg logs VMware logs
Agent-specific Logs VSS information System information  
Main Service logs      

The procedure varies depending on the Phoenix agent version you are using. If a job is executed with Phoenix agent version 3.4 to 4.5, then the Request Server Logs option will fetch the consolidated job logs available for that server. However, if a job is executed with Phoenix agent version 4.6 and later, the Request Job Logs option will fetch logs only for that particular job. You can request job logs within 30 days of triggering the job. You must download the requested logs within 7 days of triggering the request.

NoteIf you execute a job on Phoenix agent 4.5 or earlier and then upgrade Phoenix agent to version 4.6 or later before downloading the logs, you will see the Request Job Logs option on the Detailed Logs tab of the Job Details page. However, clicking this button will still fetch the server logs for the job executed before the client upgrade.

You can request job logs within 30 days of triggering the job. You must download the requested logs within 7 days of triggering the request.If the log file is 4.5 MB or smaller, you can send it to technical support as an email attachment.  If the log file exceeds 4.5 MB in size, perform the following tasks to send the logs to support:

  1. Go to https://upload.druva.com/ 
  2. Enter the case number in the Ticket Number field.
  3. Click Choose File, and add the compressed files to upload.
  4. Click Upload. Notify the support engineer that the logs have been uploaded on the portal by responding to the ongoing support ticket email.
