Under the ‘Jobs’ option, a user can view the status of jobs that have been scheduled, are currently running or have been completed. These jobs were created under the ‘Data Protection’ option in the ‘Configure’ drawer.

A Job can be defined and started in two primary ways:

  • Interactively- When you access the ‘Take backup’ icon located on the Volume Group page under ‘Configure’, it starts the Job immediately. See details of how to schedule an interactive backup in Configure  Data Protection Volume Groups.
  • Scheduled- When you take one or more of Snapshot, Cloud Snapshot and Cloud Clone based on a schedule defined through a Data Protection policy, the Job is started as per the policy attached. See Policies for details on how to create a policy.

The Jobs page displays three tabs in this view: ‘Scheduled Jobs’, ‘Running Jobs’ and ‘Completed Jobs’.  ‘Scheduled Jobs’ lists jobs scheduled to run in the future, ‘Running Jobs’ enumerates those currently in progress and ‘Completed Jobs’ lists the ones that have completed. Both types of jobs, scheduled and interactive are listed in these views.

This section displays the following tasks associated with 'Jobs' page -

 Scheduled Jobs

The ‘Scheduled Jobs’ tab lists all the jobs that are scheduled to start in the future. For each scheduled job, you will see the following columns.

  • Description – describes the type of backup, whether Snapshot, Cloud Snapshot or Cloud Clone, along with the associated Volume group and the attached Policy.
  • Last Runtime - indicates the start data and time for the last run of the Policy. For the policies that haven't executed as yet, this field will show up as 'Never'. 
  • Next Runtime –indicates the start date and time for the next run of the Policy.

Once the jobs become current they automatically move from this list to the 'Running Jobs' List.

    • Checkpoints seen while starting a job:
      • Starting
    • Checkpoints seen while creating a backup:
      • Creating shadow copies
      • Finalizing Snapshot
      • Finalizing Cloud Snapshot
      • Finalizing Cloud Clone
    • Checkpoints seen while restoring a backup:
      • Cloning Snapshot

      • Restoring Snapshot
      • Restoring Cloud Snapshot
      • Restoring Cloud Clone
  • Status –percentage of job complete.
  • Elapsed – the amount of time that has elapsed since the job began.
  • Remaining - the bytes and the time remaining for the job to complete.
  • Current Throughput - this field reports in bytes per second the sum of the most recent data throughput  for the current job.
  • Average Throughput - indicates the rate at which the data was processed in the volume for the completed job. This translates to (total bytes processed/ total time taken).
  • Total Bytes - this field reports in bytes the total size of all the volumes used for the job.
  • Processed Bytes - indicates the total number of bytes of volume that was processed in the completed job.
  • Written Bytes - shows the total number of bytes of data and metadata written to the cloud for the completed job.

  • Status - indicates the status of the job, whether the job completed successfully or failed.
  • Average Throughput - indicates the rate at which the data was processed in the volume for the completed job. This translates to (total bytes processed/ total time taken).
  • Total Bytes - indicates the total size of all the volume(s) in bytes configured for the job.
  • Processed Bytes - indicates the total number of bytes of volume that was processed in the completed job. 
  • Written Bytes - shows the total number of bytes of data and metadata written to the cloud for the completed job.
  • Details –include information on failures, if any. If a job failed, the details can be viewed by hovering over the magnifying glass icon CSV_20X21.png and a pop-up will display a detailed error message.

Refreshing, Deleting and Exporting Jobs

For all the jobs lists, namely, scheduled, running and completed, the user has options to refresh the list, delete one or more list entries and export the list.  To refresh any of the lists, simply click the refresh icon Refresh_20X20.png.

A specific job can be deleted from a list by clicking the delete icon delete_icon_20X16.png located next to the corresponding job.  This is useful when the user wishes to clear jobs from the list and export the list for further parsing.

The list view can also be exported to a csv file by accessing the CSV_20X21.png icon. This csv file has additional fields than the ones displayed in the list view. The exported file can then be saved or opened by a spreadsheet application such as MS Excel for detailed parsing.
