Difference between Granular Backup and Farm Backup

Granular Backup:

  • Granular backup is used for backing up a specific sharepoint entity, like a site collection, web or a list.
  • Granular has two main types which are site collections and Web site or list.
  • These backup mainly focuses on single content database.
  • Granular backups are content backups that work on the site collection, website, or list level.

  • These backups can be performed using Central Administration, STSADM, or PowerShell commands.
  • But it is not recommended to run site collection backups if your site collection is larger than
    around 15 GB.

Farm Backup:

  • The Farm Backup alternative is meant to be used in the scenario you describes: When you want to backup everything in the farm in one backup.
  • These are bascially towards web farms and web application levels.
  • These are basically into farm configurations, solution packages, web applications, service applications, whole content databases etc.
  • These backups can be performed using Central Administration, STSADM, or PowerShell commands.

Chart webpart SharePoint 2013

In this post we will discuss how to populate a chart web part from a SharePoint list. Here I am using chart web part in SharePoint 2013. Though Microsoft removed chart web part, you can check this work around to make chart web part available in SharePoint 2013.

Here I have a SharePoint list name as “Course” which has 5 columns and the data are like below:

chart web part sharepoint2013

chart web part sharepoint2013

Here I want to show a chart (bar) and want to see in Sharepoint 2013 how many trained, novice, intermediate and expert people. Similarly for SharePoint 2010, Asp.net and C#.Net skills.

For this first add a chart web part to the page (Edit Page -> INSERT -> Web Part). Once you will put the chart it will appear like below. Save the page.

After that click on Data & Appearance. Then select Connect Chart To Data as shown in the fig below:

Connect chart to webpart sharepoint2013

In the next step select “Connect to a List” in the Choose a Data Source section. Then click on Next.

The 4th Step Bind Chart to Data is an important step. Follow below instruction. Here

In the Series expand (click on +) Series Properties. Enter name, here I am putting based on my column names. It should be like below:

Series Name: Trained
Series Type: StackedColumn (From the drop down select the column).
Y Field: Trained (Select Trained Column from drop down)
X Field: Title (Remember this will be same for all series)

So it will appear like below:

series properties chart web part sharepoint2013

series properties chart web part sharepoint2013

Then click on the + icon near series like below:

series properties add chart webpart sharepoint2013_6

series properties add chart webpart sharepoint2013_6

Here also fill the series details like below:

Series Name: Novice
Series Type: StackedColumn (From the drop down select the column).
Y Field: Novice (Select Novice Column from drop down)
X Field: Title (Remember this will be same for all series).

So it will be appear like below:

series properties chart webpart sharepoint2013_7

series properties chart webpart sharepoint2013_7

Add all based on the columns. Here I added 4 for each columns (Trained, Novice, Intermediate and Expert).

Then click on Finish.
