Daily Backup Success Report

The Daily Backup Success Report is a very useful tool for monitoring SaaS Protection backup performance. By enabling a Daily Backup Success Report, you can provide each of your organizations with a customized report summarizing key backup information for their own environments. Also, you can create a report your team can use to monitor the backup performance for each of your organizations. All reports are automatically generated each day in PDF and CSV formats and sent to the recipients you specify.

The report includes the following details (identified in the PDF format graphic):

  1. Organization Name: The name of the protected organization.
  2. Product: The organization's application suite that Datto SaaS Protection is backing up.
  3. Application: The name of each application that is being backed up.
  4. Services Fully Protected (last 24 hours): Applies to each application. The first is the number of services for which backups were completed successfully in the last 24 hours. The second number is the total number of active services. Services that are archived or paused are not actively being backed up and therefore, are not included in either number.
  5. Never Fully Protected: Shows the number of services for each application that never completed their initial backup successfully.
  6. Last Date Fully Protected: The last date all services were backed up successfully in a 24 hour period within the last 10 days for each application.
    • If this date is more than 10 days ago, Over 10 Days Ago is displayed.
    • If services are actively completing their initial backup, Ingesting Services is displayed. Ingest times vary and depend on the size of the protected environment.
  1. Last 10 Days: The backup status for each application over the last 10 days indicated by the following icons (in PDF format only):

Icon Backup status description
All application services completed a backup without item failure at least once in the 24 hour period for that particular day.
At least one application service failed all of its backup attempts in the 24 hour period for that particular day.
All application services completed a backup in the 24 hour period for that particular day, but at least one service experienced item failure during a backup attempt.
There is no data available for that particular day. This icon will likely only appear if a new organization, product, or application has been added to SaaS Protection.
