Happy New Year ~all!

Would it be possible to add a reference in VeeamOne generated reports/dashboards to the age of data it operates on?
For example, if the Reporter collection failed over X hours/days, the data presented in the dashboards/reports would be based on the previous(successful) collection, while without a reference to the date/time of the last successful collection, it's easy to get mislead and assume the "current" state of the information presented.
===
Last successful collection: Jan 2nd 1:00 UTC
===
Thank you.

Hi Eugene and Happy New Year!
That makes sense only if last collection(s) failed.
In a case of data collection failure, coresponding alarm will be triggered, once the alarm is resolved reports will show actual data.
For performance-based reports lack of data will be evident.
Thanks!

Actually, I agree that showing "time stamp" on reports, web based dashboards makes sense, since not all guys sitting in the NOC (network operations center) have access to alarms to understand that there is an issue with data collection.

Different hosts/servers may have different last successful collection timestamp.
Eugene, could you give an example of the report you are interested in?

Web-service API to fetch information
The Monitor fetch information on disk/CPU/RAM usage, and so. Exactly like we can do with SNMP. It would be very useful (and cool) to have some web-services allowing us to extract those data. This way, we could disable SNMP on ours servers and:
- reduce the attack surface of each VM,
- save some RAM/CPU on each VM by removing SNMP daemon

If web-services API are too difficult to implement, it could also be some command lines softwares, like "veeam-cli fetch xxx"

Case # 02609102

For auditing/insurance/ purposes we need to extract data from Veeam jobs into a spreadsheet, which is very time consuming with the amount of backup jobs we run. We also use the information to see trends in data growth and timings of jobs so
we can adjust their schedule.

The reports in VeeamONE dont really show the information we need and so i was looking at getting the information 3 ways:

1 - Created an SSRS report which runs on a schedule and shows the fields we need.
2 - Connecting Excel to the SQL and importing the data that way.
3 - The ability to create a custom report in VeeamOne to display the data I need.

As an example we extract the following data from Veeam:
Status - Fail or success
Start Date/Time
End Date/Time
Waiting for tape infrastructure resource availability time
Backup Duration
Full or incremental
Backup Size (Transferred)
Processing Rate
Tape Used (If tape job)


Could point 3 be put in as a feature request ?

In the mean time is anyone aware of a data dictionary for Veeam so I could create the reports myself using T-SQL

Hello Chris and welcome to the forums!
Have you checked Backup Infrastructure Custom Data report?
I guess everything but tapes data is already there.
Thanks!

Hello there,
i could use some Reports that display more Informations about:

SAN Mode:
- can we get a Report/Alarm that checks wheather a Proxy is set to AUTO or SAN Transport Mode and then checks if the needed diskpart parameters for Direct-SAN Mode are set?
- is it possible to get a Report about the mapped offline LUNs to the Proxy for SAN Mode?

Running Job Overview:
- Can we get a (interactive) graphical output of the Start/End Time of all Jobs in Veeam Monitor? Something like a Timeline where you can view all Proxys/Repos and the running Jobs. Maybe with some nice MouseOver effects which displays the Job Name and the Bottleneck data. Some Checkboxes to select all the Jobs i like to view. Similar to the CPU Usage of all VMs :-)

Office365:
- Can we gat any Reports about Office365?

VAW/VAL:
-Can we get any Reports about VAW/VAL?

Proxy setting data is available in Backup Infrastructure Custom Data report. Corresponding alarm is planned.
For the LUNs check Unmapped Datastore LUNs report.
- Can we get a (interactive) graphical output of the Start/End Time of all Jobs in Veeam Monitor? Something like a Timeline where you can view all Proxys/Repos and the running Jobs.

There is a "Jobs" tab under Backup Server where you can overview and filter all the jobs. Have you checked it?
Office365: - Can we gat any Reports about Office365?
Not now, but if you share more details on what data you want to have in such reports, it will be helpful. Thanks!
VAW/VAL: -Can we get any Reports about VAW/VAL?
Yes, there is Protected Computers lists all protected and unprotected computers with Veeam Agents including their last backup state.

Hi Nikita,

1. SAN Mode:
The Backup Infrastructure Custom Date Report only reads the Proxy Transport mode, but not the Diskpart Settings/RegKeys.
The Unmapped Datastore LUNs Report shows only NOT Mapped LUNs, i need the opposite, or better the full Overview. In large environments with a couple of 100 LUNs you better have both informations. :-)

2.Timeline of Veeam Jobs:
In which GUI are you right now? In vONE Monitor the VM Jobs View only tabular. The summary of a single Proxy shows only a cumulative summary of X hours of load, but not the specific time or the specific Job.
The CPU Load view for a single Proxy, has a unclear scaling with 800% UNITS??

3. O365 Reports:
Ok, Ill get you some input.

4. VAW/VAL Reports:
I have only vONE on U3, the Update of VBR to U3 is still pending. Ill take a look and get you updated.

5. New: Config Change Report:
A few minutes ago i had the case that all Proxys are disabled, and i could not get any informations who done this, or why this was done. Can we get a Report similar to the Job Configuration Change Tracking or a "Reason" Window like in the File Restore Wizard?

1. Could you elaborate on Diskpart Settings/RegKeys? What is the use case and what exactly you want to see in reports?
2. I meant this tab
...
5. That report is planned for the upcoming update.

Sure, u4 will include at least 3 new reports for computers protected by Veeam agents. What kind of data are looking for?

Case #02687358

Hello, would it be possible to add more functions for reporting of specific job events in future versions of Veeam ONE?
For instance there is a event message "Failed to inject guest runtime using guest interaction proxy, failing over to backup server" - I would like to report all jobs where such event occured. By correlating this information I would be able to make further conclusions about the root issue. This is just an example and can be adopted for other events/usecases.
Thanks!

Not as concrete request for now.
But there are several that could be relevant. For example warnings as "Unable to perform guest file system indexing: Guest credentials for the VM are not specified." , "Failed to index guest file system. VSSControl: Index failed" , etc...
Some of them are even shown in the "Tasks & Events" of VONE Monitor Data Protection View. But I wasn´t able to gat a summarizing report with one specific event for a defined infrastructure scope.
So it would be good if this report can be defined flexible per usecase.

Got it. Thanks for the request.
If you want to track such issues which are collected by ONE and shown in tasks and events, you can create alarms based on those events. Just right-click on it. Then backup alarms overview report will provide you data about the triggered alarms based on those events.

No, reporting/checking disk format "Thick-Provision Lazy-Zeroed" and/or "Thick-Provision Eager-Zeroed".

You can find it in Custom Infrastructure report.

Choose
Object Type: Virtual Machine
Columns: Name, Virtual Disk Provisioning format

The report will show if VM has Thin, Lazy zeroed thick or Eager zeroed thick provisioning

Hi Nikita, thank you for your quick reply. Unfortunately I can't select "Virtual Disk Provisioning format" under "Columns".
I've only these available columns starting with "Virtual Disk:": http://www.bilder-upload.eu/show.php?fi ... 655564.png

Adding a alarm when the number of free tapes passes a threshold.

Use Case:
Archived tapes in AWS Virtual Tape Library are not reused by Veeam automatically, subsequently tapes are pulled from the "Free Tape" media pool. An alarm when the number of tapes decreased beyond a threshold will lessen the need to manually check the media pool and avoid "Waiting on Tape" emails form the Veeam backup server.

Case # 03207839 - Low Free Tape Alarm?
