View stats of previous job runs

Veeam Logoby howartp » Mon Feb 17, 2014 9:34 am

Hi,

When you click on a recurring job in the GUI, you can either view a report of the jobs' history, or the stats of the most recent run.

When I had support on a webex recently, I heard them pressing a key combination which I'm pretty sure cycled the stats through previous runs of the job.

Is this something we can do, or was I mistaken?

Ultimately what I want to see is the transfer rate of jobs - this doesn't get logged in the history report - is this available in the GUI anywhere?

Doh...! :oops:

It sounded like spacebar the way the engineer was hitting them on the webex (I could hear him) so I thought it was a hidden key combination.

I did try Up/Down, and possibly Right, but as I was on the last entry Right did nothing!

Thank you!

You're welcome. Actually, this tip is mentioned in the user guide, in the section describing realtime statistics window.

I've seen this doubt quite some times as of now, maybe we can think about adding graphical arrow buttons to navigate through summaries.

Have thought of that too, some kind of visual tip would be helpful.

Ditto - I was going to suggest this when foggy mentioned it was in the guide, but I was out and about and forgot when I got back to the office.

[MERGED] Feature Request: Statistics navigation buttons

Veeam Logoby mcosens » Tue Apr 26, 2016 5:01 pm

I'm using Veeam Backup & Replication 9. When I pull up the statistics for a job, it just shows the statistics for the most recently run job. I did not see how to view previous days statistics. While I was working on an issue with Veeam support, I asked them how to pull the statistics for previous run jobs. They told me to use the arrow keys to move back and forward through the days of the job. He described it as "like the best kept secret of the GUI" and said it was only mentioned in one place in the user guide.
I think it would be beneficial and more user friendly if there were buttons labeled Next and Previous or Back.

Can we change this thread into a "Feature Request" for visual buttons for navigating through the history of the statistics? It would be nice to have "previous" and "next" buttons you could just click on to navigate through this.

A bit unrelated, but if you have Veeam ONE (part of Availability Suite) you can use this report > Backup Jobs Historical Information

[MERGED] Feature Request - Forward and Back buttons for job

Veeam Logoby corby » Wed May 11, 2016 5:24 pm

Probably everyone knows when you double-click and open a job, the status of the job is displayed.

Some people may not realize that by using the left and right arrow keys on the keyboard allow you to scroll through the status of previous runs of the job. (Tech support showed me that trick many years ago).

I think it would be great to have left and right arrow buttons in the UI that do the same thing. It would make knowing about that feature much more obvious.

Also, very minor bug related to this. If you press the button to "hide details" and then press "show details", the left and right arrow buttons can no longer be used to scroll through job history. Instead, the left and right keyboard arrow buttons now change the focus of the UI buttons (The only way I know to get out of that is to close the window and re-open it). I'm seeing this in V9, not sure if it was that way in previous versions. Having left and right arrow buttons in the UI would also mitigate this bug.

Thanks

Actually on my Notebook the left arrow key is broken, wanting to quickly check a job log always made me want to request this but somehow never did, good one!
