On site we have near 3 dozen servers, a mixture of physical and virtual, some backup to tape and others to disk, a few important machines do both.
All in all we have about 40 backup jobs. I record the success or failure, and probable cause, for each job. Now I've been asked to put all this information in to a "report". Which will be viewed by non-IT persons. Lots of graphs
So, I would appreciate opinions on what could consider worthwhile and should be included.
So far I've got:
- Overall Success Rate
- Off-Site Backup Success Rate
- Month Success Rate
- Day Success Rate - just for IT, handy for seeing failing tapes.
- Common Failure Causes
This can include items of worth just for IT.
