Appendix C: Custom Report Views

Updated: April 21, 2010

Applies To: System Center Data Protection Manager 2010

Data Protection Manager 2010 includes several SQL views to help you create custom reports.

SQL views simplify your queries by populating columns with data collected from multiple tables in the database. These views offer several advantages over querying the tables directly:

  • You do not need in-depth knowledge of the entire database or the relationship between tables and keys.

  • If the database structure changes in future versions of the product, the views can be updated so that they behave the same.

For DPM installations that use a separate, dedicated computer for the SQL Server database, the views are queried on the database computer, not the computer running DPM. This results in less competition for resources when large numbers of views are queried over a short period of time.

The potential disadvantages of the SQL views include the following:

  • Because the view runs each time it is queried, server performance may be degraded if the view is used too frequently.

  • The available supported views might not include all of the columns you need.

This appendix lists the views available in DPM.
