I have an interesting scenario with occasional backups complaining with an error like this one:-
“Backup Pending. Failed to update metadata information on the CommServe”
Unfortunately the clients involved vary, and so it looks like a generic issue, either with the Commserve, maybe the network, or simply with load.
We are a pretty busy environment (3000 jobs per night), and so what I really want to do is look at some kind of Workload Balancing report. Ideally I would be able to see how many jobs are running at any given times, or at least roughly indicated. And I could do with the schedule name if that is possible.
My theory being, is that if I’m seeing too may jobs submitted at 7pm for example, and very few at 9pm, then I can rebalance the schedules more evenly.
However, for all the information and reports that are out there, I haven’t yet found a report, or a graph, or whatever which shows this information. We also have a shedload of schedules, so although I can manually and painstakingly wade through everything, some kind of Workload Balancing report would be very helpful.
So cut to the chase …. is anyone out there aware of a report which shows job and\or schedule activity over say a 24 hour period. Anything showing peaks and troughs would be even better, from a visual perspective.
