Rapid Recovery events

The Rapid Recovery Core includes predefined sets of events, which can be used to notify administrators of critical issues on the Core or with backup jobs on protected machines.

  • You define the event types that trigger alerts, as well as the methods the system uses for these notifications (email, toast alerts, and so on), by configuring notification groups. For more information, see Configuring notification groups.
  • If you want administrators to receive notifications using email, then in addition to configuring a notification group, you must configure an email server, and configure an email notification template. For more information, see Configuring an email server and Configuring an email notification template, respectively.
  • You can reduce the number of events of the same type and scope that appear in the Events page by using the repetition reduction feature. The repetition reduction feature is enabled by default. You can disable this feature, or you can control the span of time for which events are combined into a single occurrence in the event log. For more information, see About configuring repetition reduction.
  • You can control how long events and job history information is retained in the Events page of the Core console. For more information, see Configuring event retention.
