Email Notification for long running backup jobs

Post by lewinsb » Oct 13, 2010 1:58 pm

Is there a way to send an email to alert of a backup job that has run over a set length of time? On occasion I will see a backup job take several hours longer then normal due to one vm backing up very slowly. I have not seen any setting like this within Veeam as the notifications. Otherwise is this something that will be available in future versions?

I recommend that you install Enterprise Manager, this is the best way to monitor backup activities whether you have one or more backup servers.

We are planning on adding optional automatic shutdown of long running job (to ensure it does not cross into production hours), I suppose we can make notification like this part of this feature as well.

Thanks. I do have Enterprise Manager installed however I was hoping to get notifications sent directly to me. Thanks for the feedback.
