Supported Backup Products

The following section list the supported backup products:

Amanda Backup Server v3.3

The Check determines the status of the backup from Amanda's log files where it retrieves the job identifier along with the backup date and result.

The six potential results for the backup and their statuses are:

Result

Check

Successful

Pass

Complete with exceptions

Pass (depending on configuration*)

Canceled by the user

Pass (depending on configuration*)

Fail

Fail

Earlier job still in progress

Fail

Running out of space

Fail

* Where Show 'complete with exceptions' as successful (includes canceled jobs) is selected the check will report as passed where any of these events are found.

We feel that it is prudent to alert you to the any failure events recorded as the error may be an indication of a larger problem with the backup or infrastructure on the server. So although there may be a Backup recorded as successful we will alert to any failures recorded in the logs.
