Displaying reports in DPM
Recovery report : This report type contains the history of all recoveries that
were initiated by an administrator. This displays the time it has taken for
restores to complete and the average size of the recoveries over a period
of time.
Recovery point status report : This is the report you would use to see if you
are meeting your backup SLAs. This report is generated on the currently
selected data sources.
Status report : The status report basically gives you an overview of
your backup and overall recovery health for the entire system. It gives
you the total number of successes and failures for all recovery points for
a specified period. It also gives you the status of disk-based and tape-based
recovery points.
Tape management report : This report is for tape libraries only. This will
assist you in tape rotation. It lets you know which libraries are below the free
tape threshold.
Tape utilization report : This report will give you an overview of your tape
utilization. The idea is to use this report to help in planning for capacity and
growth. This report can help when making decisions about adding more
tapes or not and when this is needed.

NOTE : In your environment a need may arise for custom DPM reports
that contain data that you cannot get from the default reports in DPM.
You can create custom reports in DPM using SQL Reporting Services
and the DPM data directly from the SQL database. I have detailed out
this process step-by-step on my blog. You can view the article here:
