PRTG Manual: Monitoring Backups

Monitoring your backup software enables you to be sure that your recent backups succeeded. With PRTG you can check the email notifications of various backup jobs. You only need two things for backup monitoring:

  1. Configure your backup software to send emails to a dedicated email account, and
  2. configure PRTG's IMAP Sensor for backup monitoring.

PRTG will analyze the backup emails for you and set the status of the IMAP sensor accordingly. This way you will see the states of all your backup jobs at a glance.
