Veeam Backup & Replication 9.5 Update 4
Enterprise Manager User Guide

Collecting Data from Backup Servers

Veeam Backup Enterprise Manager retrieves data from added backup servers using the data collection job. The data collection job collects information about backup and replication jobs from Veeam Backup & Replication databases on the managed backup servers. The collected data is stored to the Veeam Backup Enterprise Manager configuration database and can be accessed by multiple users via the Veeam Backup Enterprise Manager website.

There are two options for running the data collection job:

Every run of the data collection job initiates a new data collection job session. For more information, see Data Collection Job Sessions.

Collecting Data from Backup Servers Note:

Consider the following:

  • Data collection job collects data from all added backup servers at once.
  • It is recommended to use periodic data collection to ensure timely update of the information available to Veeam Backup Enterprise Manager users.

Periodic Data Collection

By default, Veeam Backup Enterprise Manager collects data from added backup servers every 15 minutes. To change the data collection interval, do the following:

  1. Select Backup Servers on the left of the Configuration view and click Schedule on the toolbar.
  2. In the Data Collection Settings window, specify the desired interval in the Periodically every option.
  3. Click OK.

  1. Select Backup Servers on the left of the Configuration view and click Schedule on the toolbar.
  2. In the Data Collection Settings window, select the Manually option.
  3. Click OK.

Manual Data Collection

You can start the data collection job manually at any time. To start the data collection job manually, do the following:

  1. Select Backup Servers on the left of the Configuration view.
  2. Click Start Collecting on the toolbar.

You can view the details on the started job session in the Sessions section of the Configuration view. For more information, see Data Collection Job Sessions.

Data Collection Job Sessions

Every run of the data collection job initiates a new data collection job session. To view details on job sessions, do the following;

  1. Select Sessions on the left of the Configuration view.
  2. In the list of sessions, select the necessary session and click the View link in the Log column.
  3. In the displayed window, Veeam Backup Enterprise Manager shows the list of the job session events. For each job session event, Enterprise Manager shows the time of the event, its current status and information about the event.
