Veeam Backup & Replication Configuration Database

Veeam Backup & Replication Configuration Database stores data about the backup infrastructure, jobs, sessions and other configuration data. The database instance can be located on a Microsoft SQL Server or PostgreSQL installed either locally (on the same machine where the backup server is running) or remotely.

Veeam Backup & Replication maintains the configuration database. Veeam Backup & Replication runs the DatabaseMaintenance system job once a week and when the Veeam Backup Service is restarted. The job updates the database internal statistics, defragments indexes and clears unused data. For details, see the Job.DatabaseMaintenance.log file in the %ProgramData%\Veeam\Backup folder.
