Viewing Session Log

You can monitor the backup and restore process by viewing the backup job session and restore session logs in the Veeam Agent command line interface.

To view Veeam Agent session log, use the following command:

veeamconfig session log --id <session_id>


<session_id> — ID of the backup job or restore session.

For example:

user@wrk001 ~ % veeamconfig session log --id ff19ce06-7c54-4b07-96b6-15014992c00c
