Need Help to Understand CommVault Reports
Posted on 2010-08-14
I have been passed some CommVault reports and asked to do some analysis but have never used the product before and don't fully understand what I'm looking at.
The reports are for a site that wites data to disk only and uses deduplication as well.
I can see various figures in reports such as
Media Information Report
Library & Drive Report
But don't understand whether the MB/GB values are before/after deduplication or before/after compression or just plain source backup size or something else.
As an example, in the Lib & Drive Report I have a container that is 2Tb in size but has an occupied space of 3Tb and shows a free space of 2Tb. If I then look in the Media Info Report the same container shows a total Tb to be around 4 ( although the number is expressed in Mb ).
I've been on the product website, which seems very good, but can't find a manual/web page that tells me what the report fields mean which ultimately allows me to tie the various reports together.
Thanks in advance
