I think it's time to kick in my regular praise for Aptare's
StorageConsole.  This product will take all your backup results and send
it to a portal where you can look at all sorts of data via a web
browser.  Everything from how much data was backed up (files, GB, etc.)
to status results to performance data.  You can graph that data over
time and do all sorts of other interesting things with it.  It's not
free but the reporting capabilities are worth it (to us anyway). My
managers look at the data regularly as do my DBAs. If anybody wants to
know the status of their backups, I simply point them to the portal and
tell them to look at it themselves.  http://www.aptare.com.

Cheers,
