This section describes the MySQL Enterprise Backup Health Advisor which checks the status of backups, and alerts according to whether they succeeded or failed.
Notify on succeeded or failed backups: enables you to generate an event for the success or failure of a backup. The default values are:
Notice = Success
Emergency = Failure
There are no other return types.
Notify when incremental backups are not being used: enables you to generate an event if the monitoring agent detects that incremental backups are not used. Select Yes to generate an event.
Notify when backup lock time is excessive: enables you to generate an event if the backup lock time exceeds the defined thresholds. The default values are:
Notice = 10 seconds
Warning = 1 minute
Notify when the age of the last backup is too old: enables you to generate an event if the last backup is older than the defined threshold. The default value is:
Warning = 7 days
An event is generated for each backup run. Each event is identified by the MySQL Enterprise Backup backup ID. Successful backup events are auto-closed.
If a backup fails, generating a failure event, but a subsequent backup using the same commandline is successful, both the success and failure event are auto-closed.
