Virtual infrastructure reports. 

Let’s start with virtual infrastructure reports. 

  • Undersized VMs/Oversized VMs. This report helps to detect whether there are any VMs running out of available compute resources (vCPU/RAM). It can also provide useful recommendations for resource allocation. 
  • Guest Disk Free Space. Such report gives you information about the VMs running out of space and provides a separate report for each VM disk in the monitored environment. On top of this, it shows periods when disk space utilization reaches 100%, that helps to address free space issues proactively. 
  • VM Change Rate Estimation report allows finding out amount of data that has been written on virtual disks of VMs over a certain period of time and predicts the number of changed blocks in the future.  
  • VM Growth. This report shows how many new VMs have been provisioned daily. It focuses optimize resource utilization across the hosts alongside providing high-level overview of the state of environment for TOP management. 

Backup infrastructure reports. 

After getting useful insights into your virtual infrastructure, you need more information on your backup infrastructure. There are several reports by service providers which might become handy in this case.  

  • Protected VMs. This report reveals VM name, size, number of restore points and time of the latest restore point creation. The scope can be based on any part of the virtual infrastructure. 
  • Data Change Rate History. This report allows to estimate when your repository size needs to be increased or when it’s essential time to migrate backup data. 
  • Database Protection History. SQL/Oracle log backup jobs are constantly running by their nature, so by having such report, you can quickly identify issues with protection strategy of the databases. 

Summing up, data analysis and providing a different point of view is at the core of any reporting tool. It helps to optimize workflow or even detect malware in time. Veeam ONE helps to monitor and report the state of your hosting and backup environment and allows to improve the overall quality of service for your customers as well as a powerful tool to provide actionable information to all business units.
