Monitoring Backup Solutions via Email
Monitoring backups is getting more and more complicated for service companies with many customers as well as for companies which care for their own network only: there are many kinds of different backup solutions, the amount of data rises, etc.
Not only in big companies, even in small or medium-sized companies the kinds of backup solutions rather vary; there are backups in the area of virtualization, backups of the operating system, tape backup, online backups, etc . With these various options it is difficult to keep track on all of your backups.
PRTG offers a solution to this: A specific IMAP sensor enables you to display all backup jobs at a glance and indicates if they succeeded or not.
Almost every backup software (for example, Symantec, Acronis, Norton, Genie, Backup Exec, Veeam, CA ARCserve, and many other) can send email notifications to inform you about the status of your last backups. PRTG will analyze these emails for you and keep track of all your backup jobs.
