Monitoring Backup Cache Activity

You can use the Veeam Agent for Microsoft Windows Control Panel to view information about backup cache activity. In the Backup Cache view, Veeam Agent for Microsoft Windows displays a list of restore points that were created in the backup cache, their status and size of the resulting backup file. For restore points that are being uploaded or have been already uploaded to the target location, Veeam Agent for Microsoft Windows also displays the upload speed.

Viewing Restore Points in Backup Cache

To view information about backup cache activity, open the Backup Cache view in one of the following ways:

  • If one backup job is configured:

Right-click the Veeam Agent for Microsoft Windows icon in the system tray and select View cache. The Veeam Agent for Microsoft Windows control panel will open, and you will pass immediately to the Backup Cache view.

  • If more than one backup job is configured:

Double-click the Veeam Agent for Microsoft Windows icon or right-click the Veeam Agent for Microsoft Windows icon in the system tray and select Control Panel. In the main menu, hover over the name of the job that created restore points in the backup cache and select Open backup cache.
