backupVISUAL™ Reporter Screenshots

The following backupVISUAL™ Reporter screenshots are from a larger Symantec NetBackup™ environment. They only demonstrate a very small subset of all possible options for each report type (report properties and chart properties), you can create with the backupVISUAL™ Reporter or BatchReporter.

The look and feel is identical for every supported backup application. The main differences are the names of various reports. E.g. within an IBM Tivoli Storage Manager™ environment you will see an “Activity Overview” instead of a “Job Overview”.
