Come join our live training webinar every other Wednesday at 11am PST and hear LogicMonitor experts explain best practices and answer common questions. We understand these are uncertain times, and we are here to help!
Veeam Backup & Replication is a proprietary backup app developed by Veeam for virtual environments built on VMware vSphere and Microsoft Hyper-V hypervisors. The software provides backup, restore, and replication functionality for virtual machines, physical servers and workstations as well as cloud-based workloads.
Using LogicMonitor’s Veeam Backup & Replication package, you can monitor the health of this application’s backup, synchronization, and replication operations, as well as the operational state, availability, and maximum task counts of the VMware and Hyper-V proxy hosts.
The Veeam Backup & Replication package has been confirmed to be compatible with:
As new releases become available, LogicMonitor will test and extend coverage as necessary.
Follow these steps to set up monitoring for Veeam Backup & Replication.
If Veeam Backup & Replication is not installed on the Collector host, then PowerShell remoting must be enabled between the Collector host and target resource. To learn more about enabling PowerShell remoting, see PowerShell Tips & Tricks.
See Veeam’s PowerShell Reference for more information on the PowerShell commands supported by Veeam Backup & Replication.
The LogicMonitor Collector must provide the appropriate credentials in order to successfully access the Veeam Backup & Replication resource. These credentials can either represent:
Regardless of which user is chosen, the user must be able to create a remote PowerShell session AND access the Veeam Backup & Replication console.
Note: If Veeam Backup & Replication is installed on the Collector host, a remote PowerShell session will not be initiated and the script will instead run locally—no credentials necessary.
If credentials need to be provided, one of the following sets of properties must be set on the Veeam Backup & Configuration resource within LogicMonitor. If both sets of properties are provided, precedence is given to the Veeam properties. For more information on setting properties, see Device Properties.
If you have hosts with virtual machines in multiple Veeam jobs of the same type (for example, backup, copy, replication), you may end up with merged instances because of duplicate machine names. To improve handling of duplicate names and avoid instance merging, set the veeam.instanceformat property on the Veeam Backup & Replication host to the value “dedupe”.
LogicMonitor’s package for Veeam Backup & Replication contains the following LogicModules. Please ensure that all of these LogicModules are imported into your LogicMonitor platform.
When setting alert thresholds on the various metrics tracked by this package, LogicMonitor follows the technology owner’s best practice KPI recommendations. If necessary, we encourage you to adjust these predefined thresholds to meet the unique needs of your environment. For more information on tuning alert thresholds, see Tuning Alert Thresholds for Datapoints.
