Viewing tasks

A task is a job that the Rapid Recovery Core must perform, such as transferring data in a regularly scheduled backup, or performing a restore from a recovery point.

NOTE: As a task is running, it is listed in the Running tasks drop-down menu at the top of the Core Console. Clicking a running task opens the Monitor Active Task dialog box. For more details, see the topic Viewing running tasks from any Core Console page.

Complete the following steps to view tasks specifically for the Rapid Recovery Core, or to view tasks associated with a specific machine.

To view all tasks for the Rapid Recovery Core, from the icon bar, click [Events] (Events). The default view displays all tasks for the Core.

If you want to view tasks for a specific protected machine, then navigate to the Summary page of the specified machine, and then click the Events menu. The default view displays all tasks for the selected machine.

In the From text box, type the date and time in format MM/DD/YYYY HH:MM AM/PM. For example, to search from the first day of January in 2016 at 8:00 AM, enter 1/1/2016 8:00 AM.
To select the current date and time, click the [Calendar]Calendar widget in the From text box and then click the current date. The current time automatically appears.
Click the [Calendar]Calendar widget, select the date, then click the [Clock]Clock widget and select the desired time using the controls. Click away from the calendar to accept the selected changes.

Viewing alerts

An alert is a priority notification of an event. Any event for which you specifically requested notification appears in the list of alerts, along with errors, warnings, or important informational messages.

Rapid Recovery Core ships with a default set of events that are prioritized as alerts. You can customize the events which appear as alerts by editing the default notification group (or by setting up a new notification group). In addition to these events appearing on the Alerts page, you can change the methods used to notify you by changing your notification options. For more information on changing the events that appear as alerts, or changing notification options, see the topic Understanding event notifications in Rapid Recovery .

Complete the following steps to view alerts specifically for the Rapid Recovery Core, or to view alerts associated with a specific machine.

1.
To view alerts for the Rapid Recovery Core, from the icon bar, click [Events] (Events), and then click Alerts.

If you want to view alerts for a specific protected machine, navigate to the Summary page of the specified machine, click the Events menu, and then click Alerts.

In the From text box, type the date and time in format MM/DD/YYYY HH:MM AM/PM. For example, to search from the first day of January in 2016 at 8:00 AM, enter 1/1/2016 8:00 AM.
To select the current data and time, click the [Calendar]Calendar widget in the From text box and then click the current date. The current time automatically appears.
Click the [Calendar]Calendar widget, select the date, then click the [Clock]Clock widget and select the desired time using the controls. Click away from the calendar to accept the selected changes.

The list of alerts is immediately filtered based on the criteria you selected.
