Veeam: Client Backup

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

This check monitors the status of backups of clients carried out by the Veeam backup tool. In order to carry out the checks, the Veeam agent plugin needs to be installed on the backup server. See special instructions in the comment section of the two Veeam agent plugin scripts on how to install the scripts.

The plugin sends data for all virtual machines as piggyback data in the agent output of the backup server.

This check is OK if the status of the backup is success, Pending or InProgress. It is WARN if the status is Warning. It is CRIT if the status of the backup is Failed.

In addition WARN and CRIT levels can be set for the time since the end of the last backup.
