Tuning Veeam MP for VMware

During normal operations Veeam Backup & Replication leverages temporary objects, such as VM snapshots during the backup process, or temporary datastores for the SureBackup recovery verification. Such temporary objects may have non-standard performance or status which may in turn cause alerts from the Veeam MP for VMware.

Therefore some tuning of the Veeam MP for VMware is required to ensure that alerts are triggered only for genuine issues:

  1. Check and adjust overrides.
  2. Adjust snapshot Age/Size thresholds for VM replicas.
  3. Capture undeleted temporary snapshots.
