Updated over a week ago

​Druva CloudRanger provides an end-to-end reporting functionality that allows you to generate and customize cross-account Reports on Backup and Restore status, Schedules, and Disaster Recovery Plans across AWS accounts.

Reports provide historical data for analytics and monitoring of your backup environment. You can instantly generate and view a report, export it in PDF or CSV format, or subscribe to a report and get them delivered on a specified date and time.

The Reports subscription functionality allows users to generate and manage subscriptions to the following reports:

  • Resource Schedule

  • Resource Restore Status

  • Resource Protection Status:

  • Resource Backup Status

  • Licensing

  • EC2 Credit Storage Consumption

  • DR Plan

  • AMI Deletion

To generate and view Reports, click Reports from the top menu bar:


📝 Note
Administrators with Admin View or read-only access can also generate and subscribe to reports from the management console.

  • If you are provisioned with Org Admin view privileges, you can generate and download reports for all AWS accounts within that organization.

  • If you are provisioned with Group Admin view privileges, you can generate reports for only those AWS accounts to which you have view access.

  • Summary of License Utilization, the point-in-time licenses utilized updated once a day.

  • Summary of Total Resources that are considered towardsLicenseutilization,categorized by ResourceType, Region, and License Count.


📝 Note
The resource counts displayed are calculated at the time of report generation, and might change during the course of the day. Consequently, the counts displayed here may not match the License Utilization, which is a point-in-time calculation that is updated once a day.


  • Detailed Report on Unique Resources including information on Resource ID and Type, Region, and Account name.

For more information on licensing, see License Utilization.

EC2 Storage and Credit Consumption Report

The Storage and Credit Consumption report offers insights into the backup-wise storage and credit consumption for individual EC2 resources in an organization. The report provides information on consumption at the resource level, with associated details on backup and disk usage, estimated credit consumption, and the LTR savings within the chosen period. The report offers insights into the status of each storage consumption job run for each resource, based on which you may analyze your consumption and initiate appropriate action.

When generating the EC2 Storage and Credit Consumption report, you may specify AWS Tags as part of the report definition criteria. Tags are key and value pairs that act as metadata to help identify and organize your AWS resources. Based on the Key selected, you will need to specify the appropriate Value. For example:
Key: Environment; Value: Specify Environment Name

The report provides the following information:

  • Total AWS Source volume data (customer’s source data as per the filter selected) (GB/TB)

  • Total Druva Storage Consumption (for All EC2 resources that are backed up to Druva Cloud in the selected filter) (GB/TB)

  • Total LTR saving credits (total credits saved on data stored in cold tier)

Sample report

EC2 Storage Report.png

The following table details the information in the EC2 Credit & Storage Consumption report.

Field

Description

AWS Account

The AWS Account associated with the selected organization, for which the report is generated.

Number of Backups

The total number of backups generated for that resource within the selected time period.

AWS Source Volume Size

The size of the AWS source data at the time of the last backup.

Disk Usage

Number of blocks read during data transfer.

Data Stored on Druva Cloud (Source + Changed)

The amount of backup data generated at the source for that corresponding server. This includes the initial full backup and the incremental data from all subsequent backups

Credit consumption (Estimate)

The estimated credit consumption over the chosen time period.

LTR Savings (Credits saved)

Credits saved because of long term retention.


📝 Note
When selecting a Daily subscription schedule for the EC2 Storage and Credit Consumption Report, be advised that the Druva Storage Scheduler is set to run every day at 10:30 am GMT. To ensure that the report accurately reflects daily consumption, we recommend that you set the report generation to an appropriate time within your chosen Time Zone. For more information, see Manage Report Subscriptions.


Credits

Druva credits measure the prepaid storage that you can purchase based on the amount of storage your backups consume on the Druva Cloud. One Druva credit allows you to store 1 TB of compressed and deduplicated data on the Druva Cloud for a period of one month. A credit is expressed in TB-Month.

You may purchase Druva credits depending on the volume of your organization’s data to be stored in the Druva Cloud. For example, if your organization needs to store an average of 10 TB of deduplicated data in the Druva Cloud each month over the next 1 year, you will need to purchase 120 credits (TB-Months) that would be consumed as data stored within Druva Cloud.

Credit consumption

Druva billing mechanism charges for the actual storage consumed in the Druva Cloud. However, for a more accurate calculation, Druva calculates the actual credits in TB-Days and then converts the value into TB-Months. Druva converts the credits in TB-Months into a daily equivalent in TB-Days by dividing the credits by 12 and multiplying by 365.

1 TB-Month = (1/12) * 365 = 30.42 TB-Days

Credits are then reduced by the daily amount stored in the Druva Cloud, post deduplication. If the Druva Cloud stores 1 TB of data over 30.42 days, Druva consumes one credit. Similarly, Druva consumes one credit if the Druva Cloud stores 30.42 TB data in one day as illustrated in the following diagram.

  • Summary of total AMIs deleted categorized by manual or retention-based deletion .

  • Detailed information including AMIID, Account, Region, Date Deleted,and the Delete Type ( manual or retention ). Depending on the Delete Type, the Actor column displays the Policy Name (retention) or the user email ID (manual deletion).
