When you protect multiple data sources, the number of jobs increases exponentially, as does the need to better diagnose and address job failures. Data Protection Manager (DPM) allows you to better manage jobs by saving searches with filters.

To save a filter

  1. In DPM Administrator Console, click Monitoring on the navigation bar.

  2. Click the Jobs tab.

  3. From the Actions menu, click Create filter.

  4. Enter a filter name: for example, Scheduled Jobs.

  5. Select the Time from option from the pull-down menu, or choose a time.

    If you select Choose date from the pull-down menu, DPM displays a pop-up calendar so that you can click a date.
  6. Select the Time to option from the pull-down menu.

  7. On the Jobs tab, select one or more job types and job status.

  8. On the Protection tab, select whether to group by protection group or by computer, and select the protection group and members for which you want information displayed. If you want DPM to filter jobs on external media, you can also select External tape jobs.

  9. On the Other tab, optionally specify the Time elapsed in Minutes or Hours and the Data transferred in MB and then select the libraries to which you want to apply the filter.

    DPM allows you to choose a Greater than or Less than value for the Time elapsed and Data transferred.
  10. Click Preview to preview the filtered jobs display, or click Save to save the filter and search.

    You need to refresh the filter to detect jobs of any new or modified protection group.
