Arcserve: Backup

Distribution: official part of Check_MK
License: GPL
Supported Agents: Windows

Checks if Backup Jobs did finish successfully on an Arcserve Backup System.

Therefore it queries the database on the backup server. It needs the arcserve_backup.ps1 agent plugin to be installed there.

Please note: On the Arcserve database TCP/IP and named pipes need to be activated for the plugin to work.

The check returns

- OK if the backup job did finish with an OK message

- WARN if the job reported warnings

- CRIT if the job did report errors

- UNKN if the job did finish with an unidentified message

Number of directories, number of files and size are only reported but do never trigger any non-OK state.


The name of the backup.


One service is created for each backup configured.

Please note: This is independent of the number of hosts backuped in one backup job. Only the total state of a backup (over all contained hosts) is reported.
