Dashboard

Overview

The Dashboard is the first thing you see when you log into Phoenix. It contains detailed information about the server statistics, storage consumption, and bandwidth usage for all your organizations. 

The Dashboard page provides a graphical representation of the current status and historical trends of various entities of your Phoenix setup. The Dashboard is divided into the following sections:

Note: The start time of the last login is displayed at the bottom-right corner of the global dashboard. 

Summary

The Summary section provides an overview of the server deployment, the latest backup status, and the last seven-days trend of backup status of physical servers and virtual machines. The following screenshot depicts the complete deployment overview.

The following table describes the fields and the graphs displayed in the Summary section.

Field Description

Physical Servers

 

Displays the total number of configured servers out of the total number of registered servers across all organizations. 

  • Windows: Displays the number of clients configured on Windows File server across all organizations.
  • Linux: Displays the number of clients configured on Linux File server across all organizations.
  • MS-SQL: Displays the number of clients configured on MS-SQL server across all organizations.

Note:  For mixed workload, the Physical Servers count is 1; however, it will be counted in both Windows and MS-SQL. 

Virtual Machines

 

 Displays the number of configured virtual machines out of the total number of registered virtual machines for all vCenter/Hypervisor across all organizations. 

  • Configured for DR:  Displays the number of configured virtual machines for disaster recovery across all organizations. This count does not include "Disabled DR" and "Not Configured" virtual machines. If you are a Business customer, or an Enterprise customer and you have not purchased Phoenix DRaaS, "NA" is displayed against this field. 

CloudCache

 

Displays the number of configured CloudCache out of the total number of registered CloudCache across all organizations. If you are a Business customer, "NA" is displayed against "CloudCache".

  • Used: Displays the used CloudCache storage for all the configured CloudCache across all organizations.
  • Allocated: Displays the allocated CloudCache storage for all the configured CloudCache across all organizations.

Total Snapshots

 

Displays the count of committed Restore Points. The count includes hot, warm, and cold snapshots but does not include the MS-SQL log backups. Restore Point expiry is triggered at 11:45 PM UTC and the Total Snapshots count is updated. The count also gets updated immediately when a backup is successfully completed.

Total Restores to date

 

Displays the total number of restore jobs across all organizations with "Successful" and "Successful with Errors" status.

Note:  If you are using Phoenix for 90 days or less, Phoenix displays the total number of restore jobs from the start date. If you are using Phoenix for more than 90 days, Phoenix displays the number of restore jobs from the date, which is 90 days prior to the new global Dashboard release date.

The following table describes the graphs displayed in the Summary section.

Graph Description

Last Backup Status

 

Displays the status of the last backup for virtual machines and servers.

  • Physical Sever Workloads:  The last backup statuses such as Backup Successful, Backup Failed, Backup with Errors, Backup Window Expired, and Never Backed up, for all the configured servers across all organizations.
    In case of a server running mixed workload, the last job status of both the workloads is displayed in the pie chart.
  • Virtual Machines: The last backup statuses such as Backup Successful, Backup Failed, Backup with Errors, Backup Window Expired, and Never Backed up, for all the configured virtual machines across all organizations.

Note: If the last backup job was skipped or canceled, then the status of the job before that is displayed under "Last Backup Status". 

 The following screenshot depicts the Last Backup Status graph:

 

Last 7 Days

 

Displays the backup job statistics for all servers and virtual machines for the past 7 days. 

  • Physical Sever Workloads: The backup job statuses such as Successful, Successful with error, Window Expired, and Failed, over the last seven days for all the configured servers.
  • Virtual Machines: The backup job statuses such as Successful, Successful with error, Window Expired, and Failed, over the last seven days for all the configured virtual machines.

 The following screenshot depicts the Last 7 Days graph:

License and Storage

The License and Storage section displays the consolidated storage savings and usage trend for all storage in your environment. 

The following table describes the fields displayed in the License and Storage section. 

Field Description
Product Edition The Phoenix product that you have purchased, for example, Elite, Enterprise, or Business. 
Expires on The date of expiry of the Phoenix product edition.
Global Deduplication Savings The ratio of traditional backup storage usage to Phoenix storage.

Storage Credits Balance

The amount of unutilized credits at the end of a particular day.  

The credit balance at the end of a particular day is the difference between the ending balance of the previous day and the credits consumed in that day.

Note:  For AWS Marketplace customers, the Product Edition , Expires on, and Storage Credits Balance fields are not displayed.

The following table describes the graphs displayed in the License and Storage section. The data in the graphs are displayed as per the server time zone. 

Graph  Description

Storage Savings

 

Displays the latest size of first snapshot on source and amount of backup data generated at source.

  • Source (First Snapshot): The size of the first existing snapshot on the source servers or virtual machines. If you have deleted the first snapshot, the next snapshot size is reflected.
  • Source + Changes: The amount of backup data generated at source. This includes the initial full backup and incremental data from all subsequent backups.
  • Global Deduplication: The cloud storage consumed post deduplication.
  • Periodic Fulls: The data usage through traditional backup (D2D2T model).

 The following screenshot depicts the Storage Savings graph:

Storage Usage

 

Displays the latest available data storage usage for the past 90 days.

  • Current Source: Sum of the latest Restore Point (RP) size for all servers.  It is represented by an orange line.
  • Source+Changes: The amount of backup data generated at source. This includes the initial full backup and incremental data from all subsequent backups.  It is represented by a blue line.
  • Phoenix Storage: Cloud storage consumed post deduplication. It is represented by a green line.

Note: After a backup is completed, the Current Source field immediately reflects the current source size. The Source+Changes and Phoenix Backup fields are updated  five minutes after the backup is completed.

 The following screenshot depicts the Storage Usage graph:

Credits Balance

 

Displays the latest available data of unutilized credits for the past one year. The 3/4th of the graph contains a line that depicts the credit usage for the past nine months and and the remaining 1/4th of the graph projects the future usage of the credits for the next three months. The Credit Balance is specified in TB-months. This graph is updated daily at 12:15 AM UTC, respectively, on the Dashboard. 

Credit Balance is represented by a green line, whereas an overage is represented by a red line.

Note:  For AWS Marketplace customers, the Credit Balance graph will not be displayed.

 The following screenshot depicts the Credits Balance graph:

Note: Backup data is always stored in  the compressed form. If backup data is not compressible, the size of the resultant data after compression procedure, will be more than that of actual data because the resultant data will have an overhead of the compression header. Therefore, in case of not compressible backup data, Global Deduplication value could be marginally higher than Periodic Fulls data value.

If a virtual machine is encrypted, vmdk name changes and Phoenix identifies this change as a new disk and it is reflected under Source + Changes. However, there is no change in storage consumption because of global deduplication. This is true when the virtual machine is decrypted.

Organizations

The Organizations section provides the last backup status of configured servers and virtual machines across all organizations. 

The following table describes the fields in the Organizations section.

Field Description

Organizations

 

Displays the organizations configured in your environment.

Click the organization name to display the organizations dashboard. The organizations will be displayed in the descending order according to the workload.

Note: Click Show More to display all the organizations in your environment.

Workload

 

Displays all the configured servers and virtual machines for each organizations in your environment. The virtual machines are further segregated according to the registered vCenter/ESXi IP address or FQDN.

  • Last Backup Successful (): Displays the number of last "Successful" backups for the servers or virtual machines in the selected organizations.
  • Last Backup With Errors (): Displays the number of last "Successful with error" backup for the servers or virtual machines in the selected organizations.
  • Last Backup Failed (): Displays the number of last "Failed" backup for the servers or virtual machines in the selected organization.
  • Backup window expired(): Displays the number of servers or virtual machines for which the backup window expired
  • Never Backed Up (): Displays the number of servers and virtual machines that were never backed up in the selected organization.

Note: For a File server, if you click the number under Last Backup Successful  , the system displays the Configured Server page with the details of the File servers and the Last Backup status as "successful". Similarly, for a virtual machine, if you click the number under Last Backup Failed  , the system displays the Configured Virtual Machine page with the details of virtual machines and the Last Backup status as "Failed". 

Storage Regions

The Storage Regions section provides details of the Phoenix storage consumed by each storage region for all organizations. The Active Storage Regions field displays the count of regions in which you have active storage. Clicking on the integer for the active storage region redirects to the Storage page that lists the active storage regions. Hovering on the individual active storage region on the map displays the global deduplication savings factor for that storage.

The active storage regions are represented by green dots, whereas the inactive Phoenix regions are represented by gray dots. 

The following screenshot depicts the Storage Regions graph.
