V6.1 Warning Message

Post by KiwiJJ » Jun 12, 2012 10:32 pm

Hi,
I have just upgraded from 5 to 6.1. I backup to a removable drive. The last backup job now always gives a warning, "xxx is getting low on free disk space"
The removable drives will always only have a little bit of space left. Is there a registry setting that will change this so I don't get the warning ?
I only want green ... not yellow or red :D

Cheers,

John

there is a setting in the main menu under options tab notifications

here you can specify the freespace on the backupstorage where you want get notified or you can disable notification at all.

there is only one setting for all your backupstorage.

have not tried this myself but guess this is what you are looking for ...

Yes, Franz is correct, however I would be very careful with turning this kind of notification off for all your backup repositories.

Hi, Back from holiday so apologies for the late reply. I have 90GB free on the removable volume and the setting you mentioned -

Backup Storage - warn me when free space is below xx percent is already unticked.

Production Storage - war me when free space is below 10 GB is ticked

So I don't see how this applies to the warning message in the job email

cheers,

John

Just checked with the QC team, there is a bug with ignoring the state of this check box in v6.1, will be addressed in the next product update. Thanks.

What are the disk space thresholds for repositories?

Post by stuartmacgreen » Jul 09, 2012 8:54 am

[merged]

Using Veeam B&R 6.1

Curious to know?
What are the threshold values for a warning on repositories?
And, can they be changed? registry or in the program?

I have regular warnings.

In my instance at the moment I'm getting:-
Backup location "J:\" is getting low on free disk space (934.0 GB left of 13.0 TB).
Backup location "K:\" is getting low on free disk space (879.4 GB left of 9.0 TB).

Is it 10%, if so that would mean 1.3TB on J:\ would give me a warning. Thats a lot to have hanging around just not to get a warning.

Thanks

Feature Request: Thresholds for individual Repositories.

I now have a 14TB (J: added +1TB) repository for all my Windows 2008 servers. And I suspected of course. Still, warnings within my emails. Must be 10% threshold.?

Backup location "J:\" is getting low on free disk space (1.2 TB left of 14.0 TB).

1.2TB low value for disk free space? Some folks may have repositories this size.
OK in the relation to what I am backing up - maybe not. But would be great to control this like in vspheres alarms
Alerts and Notifications can be a great asset to a already great product.

It is a bit clinical to have clean warning free status reports, but at the expense of such wasted space.

Thanks.

Surely there is a DB setting for this one or registry entry as we suffer the same painful emails when there is clearly enough space.

Problem is it dulls the senses and backup emails become noise and are no longer attended to.

If GB is to difficult at least allow tuning to the nearest %

If you want to get fancy veeam could work out whether the next scheduled job on that Repository will be able to run and complete based on expected backup size :)
