Is there a way to see what the status of each running job in VDP is? I know you can see percent complete of the overall job but is there a way to see which machine is being backed up, which have already been backed up and which proxy it is currently using?
I have 6 jobs that back up about 100 virtual machines and the jobs just seem to sit at the same percentage for a long time. They also seem to take an incredibly long time to run.

If you see above file name is /usr/local/avamarclient/var-proxy-8/Windows VM-2000028812341-228c3603d60a5d988129677defb348da29645aeb-1017-vmimagew.log it contain info about Job ID
and which proxy is being used
For more information please refer to :
If external proxy is used the logs will be on the proxy machine under /usr/local/avamarclient/var
Login in to the https://vdp-ip:8543/vdp-configure page and verify if the external proxy is in a healthy state.
If unresponsive proxy is noticed click the gear icon and click Restart Proxy. Make sure all proxies are showing green tick.
Do I need to specify which proxy is used during each backup? I have multiple clusters at my main site which uses VDP. I have backup jobs for each cluster and a proxy deployed to each cluster since the clusters don't share datastores (example: ClusterA has Proxy1 and Datastores A,B and C along with my main VDP appliance; ClusterB has Proxy2 and Datastores D and E; ClusterC has Proxy3 and Proxy4 and Datastores F, G and H: ClusterA and ClusterB don't have access to Datastores F, G and H; ClusterB and ClusterC don't have access to Datastores A, B and C; etc.) Do I need to tell the backup the backs up VMs on ClusterC to use Proxy3 and/or Proxy4?
I don't think there is any configuration setting where you can specify which proxy will be used for each backup however if you want to double check on this you might want to open a service request with VMware.
From the SSH run,
mccli activity show --active
This will show all the active running jobs with bytes progress
To refresh every 2 seconds:
watch -d mccli activity show --active
