MigrationWiz - Statistics & Statistics Lookup - FAQ

MigrationWiz provides robust statistics reporting to assist with troubleshooting and migration management.​ Some detailed statistics are only available on a per-mailbox basis. Others are global statistics available on a per-project basis. This document explains how to access your statistics, and how to use them effectively. It also covers a few related questions. If your question is not answered here, please let us know in the comments section so that we can add it to the documentation.

  1. Click on the project (containing the mailbox).
  2. Click on the mailbox.

 

To receive the global statistics for a project

This includes global detailed statistics like number of emails migrated, failed items for each mailbox, etc. These statistics are only available on a per-project basis.

  1. Identify the project.
  2. Click on the Email Project Statistics action icon on the right side of the list view.
  3. We will send you a detailed report by email.

  1. Sign in to your MigrationWiz account.
  2. Open the Project where the mailbox resides and locate the specific mailbox.
  3. Click on the mailbox Status.

 

What do the statistics mean?

MigrationWiz records a number of statistics about your migration. This can help you identify problems, troubleshoot failures, and expedite future migrations.

​​Source Active Duration (minutes): The amount of time that the read thread is actively reading data from the Source​.
Source Passive Duration (minutes): The amount of time that the read thread is waiting for other processes, and is idle.
Source Data Speed (MB/hour): The average read speed of the thread for the duration of the migration​​.
Source Item Speed (items/hour): The average number of items being read for the​ duration of the migration.
Destination Active Duration (minutes): The amount of time that the write thread is actively writing data to the Destination.
Destination Passive Duration (minutes): The amount of time that the write thread is waiting for other processes, and is idle.
Destination Data Speed (MB/hour): The average write speed of the thread for the duration of the migration.
Destination Item Speed (items/hour): The average number of items being written to the Destination for the duration of the migration.

 

Why are some of these statistics inaccurate?

In certain project configurations, the statistics reported to MigrationWiz may not correctly reflect the number of items migrated​. Specifically, migrating to recoverable items, or using a folder mapping and migrating many folders into one, will cause the reported stats in MigrationWiz to be incorrect.

For example, you have three folders in your Source with 10 items each:

Folder A: 10 items

Folder B: 10 items

Folder C: 10 items

You want to migrate these items to one folder in the Destination, which is currently empty:

Folder ABC: 0 items

When the migration is started, MigrationWiz will first check the Destination for previously migrated items, in an attempt to prevent duplicates. As there are no items found, Folder A migrates 10 items to Folder ABC. MigrationWiz will display it migrated 10 items for Folder A.

Next, MigrationWiz moves on to Folder B and does the same check in the Destination, only this time it finds 10 items. Since these items are not duplicates, we take note and then migrate the 10 items found in Folder B. MigrationWiz will display it migrated 20 items for Folder B.

Finally, completing the migration for Folder C, MigrationWiz finds 20 previously migrated items, and these are again different, so it takes note and then migrates the remaining 10 items. MigrationWiz will display it migrated 30 items for Folder C.

After the migration completes, Folder ABC in the Destination has 30 items, as expected. However, the stats in MigrationWiz do not correctly reflect the number of items migrated; instead, they are an aggregate of all items migrated up to that point in the migration.

 

To enable subject logging for failed items

By default, we do not log the subject of failed items. However, you can ​enable subject logging for failed items.
