Custom Reports

Often companies, particularly ISPs providing backup service, want to create custom reports containing backup summary. This article discusses a few methods that can be used to create custom reports.

Summary Reports

There are two types of files on Syncrify server that can be used to create custom reports.

Detail Reports

Besides the two files described above, you can optionally create another set of files containing backup logs. These logs are stored in CSV format and can be easily imported into a relational database for reporting purposes. Watch this video if you need help importing a CSV file in a database.

This option is disabled by default. Follow the steps below to turn it on.

When this option is turned on, Syncrify client will send the backup log to the server, which then converts that into a CSV file and saves it to a local folder. These files are located off of $INSTALLDIR/ClientBackupLogs folder.

Files names use the following format:


The first token contains a date value represented in milliseconds since January 01, 1970. The second token holds total bytes transferred.

File format

Every CSV file contains 3 columns:

  1. Action -Contains an integer from 1 to 7 signifying the state of the file.
    1. Entire file
    2. No change
    3. Partial file
    4. Deleted
    5. Restored - (Partial file)
    6. Error
    7. Warning
    8. Restored - (Entire file)
