How to Monitor NetBackup using eG Enterprise?

eG Enterprise employs an agent-based approach to monitor a NetBackup appliance. This approach requires that an eG agent be deployed on a host on which the NetBackup appliance is installed. To collect the metrics of interest from the NetBackup appliance, a pre-requisite needs to be fulfilled.

Pre-requisites for Monitoring NetBackup

To enable the eG agent to monitor the NetBackup, the following pre-requisite should be fulfilled:

  • The eG agent runs the admin command to collect the performance metrics from the target appliance. For this purpose, location of the admin command should be given while configuring the tests to monitor the NetBackup appliance. For example, <NetBackup Install Directory>\NetBackup\bin\admincmd\

Once the aforesaid requirement is fulfilled, the eG agent collects and reports useful metrics that reveal the performance of the NetBackup appliance (refer to Monitoring NetBackup).
