Monitoring and reporting for
Veeam Backup & Replication version 7new

If you have Veeam Backup & Replication v7, you will be able to monitor your entire backup infrastructure, including proxy servers, repository servers, WAN accelerators, backup jobs running on backup servers, and more.

Veeam MP discovers the Veeam backup environment and provides performance metrics for individual backup jobs running on backup servers, with alerts that are specific to each job. The backup jobs are monitored to alert on job failure and duration (optional).

To see this in action, download a free 30-day trial of Veeam Management Pack. After the trial, you get to keep a subset of the features ― basic monitoring for Veeam Backup & Replication.

Veeam MP monitors all backup infrastructure used by Veeam Backup & Replication

Veeam MP delivers advanced analysis reports, including:

  • Protected and unprotected VMs
  • VM verification
  • Restore operator activity
  • Backup copy job
  • Capacity planning for backup repositories

Enhanced fault tolerance new

Veeam MP ensures continuous delivery of monitoring data with automatic re-targeting of data collection. In the event of a vCenter outage, Veeam MP automatically fails over and reconfigures so that data will be collected directly from vSphere hosts. And when vCenter is restored, Veeam MP returns to the default data collection method without interruption.

Configuration tracking and alert correlationnew

This new report shows you detailed tracking of configuration properties for all vSphere objects, so you’ll know what has changed in the vSphere environment. This is important because if there is an issue with resources or capacity, you will have a correlation of events to help pinpoint the exact cause.

Veeam Management Pack Core Features

Storage, network and compute topology views

Separate topology views of distributed storage, network and compute environments allow you to quickly browse relationships and dependencies among your critical applications, services and supporting virtual and physical infrastructures. You can link from the topology view directly to real-time dashboards and monitor key metrics, such as latency, provisioning and utilization.

System Center 2012 dashboards

Real-time performance views of critical vSphere systems are presented in dashboard views—such as ‘Top 10 hosts for CPU’ per-cluster and ‘Top 10 VMs for Disk I/O’ per datastore—that leverage System Center 2012 Operations Manager widgets.

Alerts

A comprehensive VMware Knowledge Base serves as your VMware "expert in a box," empowering front-line monitoring staff and reducing problem resolution time.

Alerts display information from VMware knowledge base articles that include problem summaries, causes and recommended solutions.

Reporting

Storage monitoring heatmaps for datastore space and datastore performance usage provide an instant visual representation that uses color and graphics to show how rapidly your infrastructure is growing. You can see at a glance which VMs are the biggest, which are the fastest growing and drill down to find out why.

Capacity planning

Veeam MP offers four capacity planning reports for VMware, built directly in Microsoft System Center:

Host failure modeling shows what will happen to CPU and memory if one host fails in a cluster

  • Host Failure Modeling
  • Performance Forecast for Datastores
  • Performance Forecast for vSphere Clusters
  • Virtual Machine Capacity Prediction

Supporting Features

Out-of-the-box integration

Veeam MP enables all System Center functionality: Alerts, diagrams, dashboards, reporting, auditing, notifications, responses and automation—for all VMware components, including vCenter Server, clusters, hosts, virtual machines, storage and hardware. Built-in thresholds, graphs, and reports that provide a ready-to-use detailed health model with hundreds of metrics and events, including memory pressure, disk pressure and disk IOPS that are unique to Veeam MP

Monitoring

Performance analysis and correlation monitors ‒ These monitors accept inputs from multiple performance metrics and gather correlated data from other vSphere objects to help you solve problems faster. Dynamic correlated data is provided right in the alert description.

Monitoring capabilities ‒ Veeam MP delivers multiple performance metrics, including CPU, memory, disk and network I/O—for Cluster, Resource Pool, Host and VM—and events, which include Host, VM, Resource Pool and Cluster status, VM migrations and deployment, licensing, storage and network availability

24x7 delivery of critical monitoring data ‒ Rich and detailed information on the status of vCenter Server, vSphere hosts and virtual machines is continuously delivered, using a distributed architecture with automated high availability and load balancing.

Reporting

Right-sizing reports ‒ These reports provide guidance to reallocate resources for VMs that are oversized, helping you run a more efficient datacenter.

Veeam Extended Generic Report Library ‒ Veeam provides enhanced Microsoft System Center reporting with the Veeam Extended Generic Report Library (GRL). Now you can analyze the health and performance of infrastructure objects without being limited to physical or virtual environments, or to specific management packs. The Veeam Extended GRL allows you to create detailed reports by customizing new parameters and rules. It’s “extended” because this functionality is not included in the current Microsoft System Center Generic Report Library. Better yet, it’s FREE.

Secure and agentless data collection

Veeam MP uses best practice API methods to collect event, topology and performance information from the virtual infrastructure. No agent software is required on vSphere hosts or in VMs, eliminating overhead, risk and limited lifespan of an agent running in the hypervisor. Data is encrypted and communicated securely over HTTPS.

Scalable deployment and centralized management

Multiple, distributed collectors can be scaled to monitor even the largest VMware environments. A centralized web console simplifies configuration, license management and upgrade procedures.
