Backup & Recovery Selected Size Check

The Backup & Recovery Selected Size Check, available for Windows (from Agent 8.16) and Macs running Backup & Recovery, is a Daily Safety Check designed to monitor the backup size of the selected plugins (data sources) based on completed sessions.

The check fails and generates an alert (depending on configuration) where the entered threshold value (GB or percent) is exceeded:

  • Selection for one or more plugins increases by % per day
  • Selection for one or more plugins exceeds specified GB per day
