Once the backup set has been configured and/or activated and the backup has been initiated, the user is redirected to the monitor page. The user can see the progress of the backup here. The user can also abort the backup (or restore) if required. The monitor page lets the user track the progress of backup/vault/restore run(s).   


If no backup, vault, or restore run has been triggered, the Monitor page table will be empty as shown below: - 



The table on the page has several columns: Date and Time, Backup Set, Runtype, Status, Completed and Actions.  


Date and Time: It shows the date of the run in mm/dd/yyyy format and its time in 13-hour format.

Actions: It displays two icons, namely Abort and View Report. The Abort option is used for stopping a backup/restore while it is in progress, if the user clicks on this icon, the backup/restore will be aborted. If the backup has already happened then it shows the DLE summary as can be seen in the image below. The View Report option redirects the user to the reports page where the user can see the detailed report of the vault/backup/restore run.

Stages in Backup, Restore and Vault   


Once a backup, restore or vault job is triggered, the user can view the status of these jobs on the Monitor page.


The real time status of backup and restore is indicated in four stages.

  1.  The first stage indicates that the residual files from the previous backup is cleared at the ZMC server if indicated to be successful. 
  2. The backup planner is consulted for various reasons like schedule and the end storage location. The second stage is indicated to be successful once the estimate is received.  
  3. Data is transferred to the backup server before writing to the backup media. This action is indicated in the third stage.  
  4. The fourth and the final stage indicates the status for when data is transferred to the backup media.  



One restore job can be triggered at a time, which is why the status of a restore job is indicated in four stages at the respective entry on the table.

  1.  All the prerequisites like locating the backup files and creating the appropriate configuration files happens at the first stage.  
  2. The user is authenticated for the restore job in the second stage.  
  3. Zmanda is ready for the restore job in the third stage.  
  4. The progress of data restored is indicated in the fourth stage.   


The progress of a vault job is indicated as a single stage as represented below:

If flushing is enabled at the staging area or if the staging area is manually flushed, the user can see the progress of the flush run on the Monitor page.
