Oracle Backups


This monitor can monitor backup status, dutation, size and elapsed time since last backup.
You can quickly set general failed backup monitoring rules as well as custom rules for specific types of backups.

Configuration hints

  • Create a new rule and select the type of backup to monitor and the expected status.
  • Use the thresholds fields for setting the maximum duration, size and elapsed time.
  • If a backup with matching the filter is found breaching any threshold, an alarm will be sent.
  • For threshold you can use the multi threshold syntax. If you set a numeric value instead, the secerity field will be used to set the alarm severity.
  • Set a threshold to 0 if you don't want to use it.
