Monitoring events and configuring notifications

About NetVault Backup events

An event can be described as any significant occurrence in the NetVault Backup system. It can indicate a problem that requires your response or a condition that you want to be notified about. Events can be predefined or user-defined.

Events are recorded in event logs. You can view event log messages from the View Events page. Event logs can be used to track activities or respond to problems or errors reported by the system.

NetVault Backup includes a set of predefined events, which are associated with various job-related and non‑job‑related occurrences in the system. The predefined events are organized into different categories or classes. Each category or class includes one or more event types. For information about predefined event classes and event types, see Event classes and Events types.

You can create user-defined events in NetVault Backup to monitor specific events associated with backup jobs, restore jobs, policies, report jobs, and log messages. For example, you can create a user-defined event for a backup job and receive notification if the job completes successfully, completes with warnings, or fails. For more information, see the relevant sections in this guide.

About notification methods

Different methods available in NetVault Backup for sending notifications when an event occurs. You can use global notification methods, user notification profiles, or custom notification methods.

The global notification methods include SysOp Email, Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) Traps, Print Report, and Run a Job. For more information about these methods, see Using global notification methods.

You can set up a user notification profile to send email notifications to a NetVault Backup user when an event occurs. For more information, see Setting up user notification profile.

Custom Notification Methods are created using external scripts, and typically used to perform some task when an event occurs in the NetVault Backup Domain. For more information, see Using custom notification methods.
