[Feautre][OBSR][NS]Replication progress

Postby leemason » Thu Nov 06, 2008 1:05 am

It would be really handy to have some sort of replication progress indication on OBS. Even if this is only an indication of the size of the OBS backup set as against the RPS size it would really help to give OBS server admins a good feeling about how much has been replicated. Maybe it could give these two sizes plus an indication of the last backup set date to be sent from OBS to RPS.

This is a question that has come from a prospective customer but it does make sense to be able to know how much replication has actually been done.

Is anything like this in the development pipeline?

Hi,

There are similar request in our enhancement queue, but we still do not have a target date for this feature. We will keep you posted on any updates.

Thanks.

Thanks the the reply. In addition it would be good if when in logging mode the OBS server were to include a message in the RPS log to tell you which log file number is that last on the server.

For example I have a customer at present that is replicating "Receiving '/data4/bserve04/files/D%3A/Program Files/BackupsAnywhereOBS and BackupsAnywhereRPS/system/logfiles/log03e0.alf' " It would be good to know how many more logs are on the OBS server (ls log03ef.alf the highest log number on the server which won't take too long or is log04ff.alf the last one in which case it's got a log way to go).

Please "WHEN WILL IT BE DONE" Please. Some kind of estimate of at least how much data remains to be replicated?????? I can make my own time estimate based on OBSR upload speed determined by Bitmeter.

P L E A S E. I button I can push that will tell me?

256,000 files to be replicated
1203000 Bytes to be replicated

126,512 files replicated
6300000 Bytes Replicated

126526 files waiting to be replicated
5760000 Bytes waiting to be replicated

Sounds simple enough!

It may not be possible to estimate in real-time of how many data is necessary to be replicated. However, an request to implement a better monitoring system of the replication informing the management and his customers about the exact replication status preferably in reports and graphs had been suggested.

The request is currently within the enhancement queue, and will be implemented in the future version. However, at this moment we do not have an estimate time on when will this feature be implemented.

Thanks.

Real time would be nice, but it seems only a little code would be needed for a point - in - time estimate. The software seems to calculate which files need to be replicated, so by gathering the file sizes one could at least determine how much data is flagged to be replicated. Then, we could calculate the aproximate time to move the data.

Example:

11/01/2009 09:00 - OBSR Log reports 186,254 files and 1009000 bytes of data to be replicated.

Easy! And would work for now.
