Job Filters

The Jobs page provides three filters, such as Job Type, Status, and Started in, that allow you to filter your jobs. The job filters list the jobs based on their types, statuses, and the time frames they are started in. After applying filters, you can click individual jobs to view the job statistics. The job statistics provide additional information about the backup and restore jobs, for example, data estimation, network I/O throughput, and other such backup and restore details, which aid in troubleshooting backup performance issues.

To access job filters

  1. Log on to Phoenix Management Console. 
  2. On the menu bar, click All Organizations, and select the required organization from the drop-down list.
  3. On the menu bar, click Jobs.
