Veeam Backup & Replication

The Veeam Backup & Replication Check queries the Veeam Backup Windows Event Log on the local device (introduced in version 5 of Veeam Backup & Replication) to determine the status of any backup jobs that completed in the preceding 24 hour period.

The Events are filtered by ID (0), Source (Veeam Backup), with the Event Type indicating the job state: Information (success), Warning (complete with exceptions) and Error (failure). Details of the job are then extracted from the Event Description for any discovered Events that match these criteria and reported in the Extra column against the Check.

The Backup Check passes where the specified number of Success or Complete with exceptions (where Show 'complete with exceptions' as successful is configured) messages are discovered.
