Error description

  • "The Using Central Control Station (Windows only)" section of
    the FastBack Installation and User's Guide needs text added to
    clarify the behavior of the Replication Status window.
    
    Suggested text follows:
    "Viewing Progress Status for DR Replication
    
     To check DR replication progress status, go to 'Replication
     Status of XXX' where 'XXX' is the branch name. During data
     transfer over the WAN, the progress status is normalized to
     10% ~ 90% in 10% increments.
    
     TransferredProgress =
     AlreadyTransferredKb * 100.0 / TotalSizeKb
    
     NormalizedProgress =
     TransferredProgress * ((90.0 - 10.0) / 100.0) + 10.0
    
     Where 'AlreadyTransferredKb' is the data amount in Kilo bytes
     already transferred via WAN; 'TotalSizeKb' is the total file
     size to transfer in Kilo bytes for the chain; the value of
     'NormalizedProgress' will display in section 'Progress'.
    
     After data transfer completes for a procedure, DR will run on
     successive procedures and if all complete successfully,
     'Progress status' will update to 100%."
