Displaying file replication status and reports

Replication and Disaster Recovery Administration Guide for Hitachi NAS Platform

Part Number
The Replication Status & Reports page displays a list of replication jobs in progress or completed. It also includes reporting details on files replicated, amount of data replicated, and success or failure status. If a schedule is deleted, the reports associated with it are also deleted.
  1. Navigate to Home > Data Protection > File Replication Status & Reports to display the File Replication Status & Reports page.

    The replication report Status column displays results of a replication job (green for OK, red for failed). Reports can also be beneficial for analyzing the effects of a particular incremental replication policy. The information in the Report Summary page provides a detailed view of the replication job results. This information can be used to make performance adjustments to the replication policy and schedule.
