I would like to ask if Drive and Media being used for a backup/restore job can be displayed in Job Activity Monitor.
within the "Jobs" tab in the Activity Monitor as this info already appears in the "Drives" tab of the Activity Monitor?
"Have you still got the box it came in?"
Andy thanks for your feed back. but I am aware of that information is aviable from details stauts once you click on the job.
but it's time consuming, having this column in the activity monitor will help save a lot of time and also makes it eaiser to compute your drive throughput if you have mulitplexing turned on.
Yes, so you can cross reference the jobs with the media used.
If the state details of jobA are waiting for media, you have to open every running job to find which one has the media locked.
Problems will come since duplications can have multiple media, but the catalog displays them, would be nice to add to Activity monitor job list.

to see this..i got it figured out via a simple script...though my scripting is not all that good... i have set these settings in bp.conf because i want to see these columns + column for Media id + column for drive name.. ( this script will give you an idea how to see the information...maybe someone can enhance it) .
here is tech note for these settings...
BPDBJOBS_COLDEFS = JOBID 5 true
BPDBJOBS_COLDEFS = TYPE 4 true
BPDBJOBS_COLDEFS = STATE 5 true
BPDBJOBS_COLDEFS = STATUS 6 true
BPDBJOBS_COLDEFS = POLICY 6 true
BPDBJOBS_COLDEFS = SCHEDULE 8 true
BPDBJOBS_COLDEFS = CLIENT 6 true
BPDBJOBS_COLDEFS = DSTMEDIA_SERVER 12 true
BPDBJOBS_COLDEFS = KBPERSEC 10 true
attaching the script... once these are set..you should be able to run this script...and may need to be adjusted incase it was messed up while sending this file from Unix to MS outlook...
don't forget to give me kudo's if you find it to be useful..this is motivate me for further scripts..Lol..
