The Activity page gives you important information about currently executing and completed jobs. It can be reached by clicking See more ► in the dashboard Activity tab or by drilling down on a category in the dashboard Job Status summary.
In the Activity page, you will see a list of all running and recently completed jobs for your organization. If jobs are running, you will see live updates for them. You can sort or filter the list by any column.
Click any item in the activity list to open the activity details pane. Depending on the job type, several tabs might be available.
In the Overview tab, you will see summary information about the job. This information will be updated in real time for running jobs. For some jobs, a Download logs link is available that will allow you to download relevant logs from the agent for debugging purposes. A Report an issue link is also available. This will send a message to CloudCasa support containing information about the job to assist in troubleshooting.
In the Activity Log tab, you will see important log messages generated by the job. You will see live updates for running jobs here as well.
For Kubernetes backup jobs that perform PV snapshot operations, the PV Details (Snap) tab will display information about snapshots taken during job execution. Note that both snapshot and copy backup jobs typically make use of snapshots. For jobs that involve many PVs, filtering and sorting of the list is possible to make viewing easier.
For Kubernetes backup jobs that perform PV copy operations, the PV Details (Copy) tab will display information about the data copy operations performed for each PV. Clicking on the arrow to the right of each PV entry will expand the item to display additional information. For jobs that involve many PVs, filtering and sorting of the list is possible to make viewing easier.
Interpreting PV stats
In the Overview and PV Details (Copy) tabs, Estimated, Read, and Transferred values are shown for PVs. These are determined as follows.
During a backup, CloudCasa will scan the PV filesystem to identify files that were modified since the last backup, summing their sizes to generate the Estimated value.
The Read value is the amount of data that was actually read from the filesystem so far.
The Transferred value shows how much data was transferred to object storage after de-duplication and compression.
Both Estimated and Read may keep changing as the backup is progressing since scanning and reading happen in parallel. At completion, the Read value will be equal to the Estimated value since all modified files will have been read.
