Maintenance Job

The maintenance job is a system job that is executed automatically every 24 hours.

The maintenance job does the following:

  • Purges obsolete restore points that fall under the retention policy.

To be able to purge obsolete restore points from external repositories due to the retention policy threshold, a Veeam Backup & Replication client must be the owner of a repository and its backup files.

  • Purges cache by 20% of the size limit. By default, the size limit is 10GB.
  • Saves its session results to the configuration database.

The session results can be found in the History view under the System node.
