Transition from Remote Operations Management Service (ROMS®) to Metrics Reporting Server

Remote Operations Management Service (ROMS®) functionality has been merged into Metrics Reporting Server. To access the same kind of information and services that were available with ROMS, you can transition to Metrics Reporting Server. Similar features on Metrics Reporting Server include the Worldwide Dashboard, the Health Report, Alerts on Reports, and Proactive Support.

  • The Worldwide Dashboard displays a preview of the most critical information gathered from all of the CommCell computers in your organization. For more information, see Worldwide Dashboard on the Cloud Services Website.
  • The Health Report includes both a summary and detailed view of all CommCell computers in your organization, such as the status of backup operations, system performance statistics, deduplication performance statistics, and strike counts.

    Once you have set up Private Metrics Reporting and Cloud Metrics Reporting, you can view the Health Report or set the Health Report to automatically generate and e-mail the output according to the schedule that works best for you. For more information about the Health Report, see Health Report - Overview.

  • Alerts send notifications about critical system information that appears in many reports, such as the overall CommCell backup percentage, or the amount of disk space available. For instructions on setting alerts, see Web Console and Cloud Metrics Reporting instructions:
  • Proactive Support allows our Private Support Team to diagnose your CommCell problems from a remote location. For more information, see Proactive Support.
