Backups by State

From Main Selection -> Job State -> Backups backup operations can be viewed historically.

The order of the columns can be changed as needed by dragging-and-dropping selected columns. By selecting a task and clicking the button Properties or by simply double-clicking the task you can view the details of a specific task. An active task can be canceled by selecting it and clicking the button Cancel.

By clicking a column header, e.g. "State" or "Start Time", the column will be sorted accordingly. If you right-click a column header a pop-up menu appears:

You can set which columns are shown by adjusting the Column Visibility.

These settings are stored in the local Java-profile of the GUI client by default. The jobs (if already implemented) are shown grouped in treetable view (see Tasks by Groups). The button Table View can be used to switch to a simple flat view. After switching this button turns into Treetable View so you can go back to the previous view.

Toggle Grouping

As of 4.4.3. Tigon V2, you can use additional Toggle Grouping button to group the same backup task states in one item and display its current status. Grouping allows you to quickly scan the success of backup jobs (useful for backups which are running several times a day and generate a huge backup tasks count on one day, such as SAP HANA or Oracle). Note that you can identify the state of a grouped task by the color of the state column. If the grouping contains backup jobs with different states, the icon is also in two colors. For example, a square with green at the top and red at the bottom means that the last run of the task was successful, while a previous one ended with errors.

State Filter

The Filter can be found on the top right side of the window. The filter window divides into four areas (Data Range and Clients, State, Type and Task Name).

The control window all servers is only visible for the SEP sesam Master GUI. Using this option the system administrator can select specific SEP sesam Servers for display and action.

Date Range and Clients

With Data Range and Clients you can restrict the display by time or by client.

All servers
The switch is only relevant in a Master GUI environment and then used to display the backups of all servers that are managed with the Master GUI.
