Backup Notification Linux

I manage a few dozens of Linux Debian Servers.
I'm making some tests with the latest version available.
I need to receive an email after the backup is made with the resume of the Backup below:

Backup 100% Status: Warning
Summary Data

Duration: 00:05:23 Processed: 9.6 GB (100%)
Processing rate: 32.5 MB/s Read: 9.6 GB
Bottleneck: Target Transferred: 34.5 MB (285.6x)

Time Action Duration

19:40:37 Preparing to backup
19:40:42 Creating volume snapshot 00:00:01
19:40:43 Starting incremental backup to Repository_1
19:40:55 Backed up sda 9.6 GB at 33.2 MB/s 00:04:58
19:45:53 [warn] Cannot find EFI boot manager utility
19:45:53 Backing up summary.xml 00:00:00
19:45:57 Releasing snapshot 00:00:03
19:46:00 [warn] Processing finished with warnings at 2017-07-25 19:46:00 BST

Is this info in one file only, so that I can attach the info to an email with a script?
If so, where is the location of the log?

I can ony find info very detailed of the backup, in different files.

Every time the BackupJob runs it creates a new folder with log files in it, but I don't need all the information, and Im not able to do a script to read info in a different folder everytime:

That specific info is not in a file available. However you can find info in the database (/var/lib/veeam/veeam_db.sqlite). Other options are using scripts after the job has ran showing info based on the sessions (for example veeamconfig session list | grep -e UUID -e Failed | mailx -s "VAL session Failed" )

If you have Veeam Backup & Replication you can send backup to the backup repo there and let it handle the mailflow.

I tried to build a notification script which provides nearly the same information as the windows agent notification...
