Two questions: Backup monitoring and iReport functions

Discussion created by ray.wood on Dec 10, 2010

I am currentky involved in a POC with an MSP, hoping to close this quarter. Whilst onsite today there were a couple of requirements raised:



1) Does anyone have sample probe configurations (I'm thinking ntservices, ntevl and logmon) for monitoring NetBackup and CommVault backup solutions?


2) They would like a disk usage report with a detail line for each disk showing current usage, total capacity, last month average and prediction for next month usage based on last months trend.

Has anyone built a report like this?

Apart from the prediction value, is it possible to get all of these values through a single query?

Does anyone have a formula for calculating a trend? Is it as simple as calculating the increase over the last month and adding that to current to get next months prediction?
