Backup/Restore Statistics

Daily activity

Backup Size

This view shows separate columns for each backup made to the virtual machine. Thanks to this, you can easily determine what data increase.

Backup Time

A very useful report. It allows you to determine the required window length for backups or, based on the time of individual phases, it is easy to deduce the cause of slow backups.

Transfer Rate

One of the latest reports, now you can easily see how fast data transfer is.

Restore Time

A view with the same properties as "Backup Time". It allows us to estimate how long it will take to restore the machine in the event of a failure.

Transfer Rate

As in the previous case, we also have the transfer speed for the restore job.

Events Calendar

The calendar extends the possibilities of adjacent statistics. It allows you to neatly define the range of days you want to see, additionally makes a quick summary of the number of backups and restores (top right corner). Blue - the sum of all backups, Green - the sum of successes, Red - the sum of failures.
