Backup4all Monitor provides realtime and historical monitoring for actions executed by FBackup or Backup4all on remote machines. You can monitor remotely backup/test/restore & cleanup job actions from any client computer that has Backup4all or FBackup installed.
Backup4all Monitor is compatible with the following operating systems:
The Backup4all Monitor has two components:
Backup4all Monitor Server. The monitoring server gathers the monitoring information sent to it from all the client computers that have Backup4all or FBackup installed and configured to send data. Only details about job actions are sent (backup, restore, test, cleanup). The server can be installed in your own network or on cloud servers such as Amazon S3/Azure.
Backup4all Monitor Dashboard. The dashboard provides a graphical user interface for analyzing the data stored and managed by the Backup4all Monitor Server. It can be installed on the same computer as the monitor server, or on different computers as it's able to connect remotely. The dashboard is free to use/distribute, thus you can install it on as many computers as you need.
Backup4all Monitor is a desktop application that can be used to monitor the backup executions of multiple computers running Backup4all or FBackup.
You can monitor in real time the backup/test/restore/cleanup executions of the backup jobs/tags and you can also view the backup history and the logs for all your computers where Backup4all or FBackup is configured to send reports to Monitoring Server.
The main advantage of the Backup4all Monitor application is that you do not have to connect to each computer where Backup4all or FBackup is installed in order to check the backup status. You have an overview of all monitored computers in a single place (i.e. your laptop, home computer, etc.) that shows you the statuses of all actions done via Backup4all or FBackup.

Here are some key features you get by installing it
See in realtime the status of the current running jobs recorded from all Backup4all clients connected to the server. It monitors backup & restore jobs as well as test and cleanup operations.
For each monitored action you can see its status, start date, and detailed information (i.e. description, computer). You can filter the monitored actions by date, status, type, action and much more.
The monitoring server can be installed locally within your own network, or it can be installed in the cloud or on a remote destination. This way every desktop, laptop or server computer with Backup4all installed and configured can send reports to the monitoring server.
The Backup4all Monitor dashboard can then be installed separately so you can monitor the actions remotely from any location, as long as you have Internet access.
Aside realtime monitoring, the Backup4all Monitor can store historical details for every action that ran on the monitored clients. Each monitoring session contains full details and can be filtered by date/time, statuses, actions and more.
The monitoring history helps administrators by recording the statuses of each backup/restore/test or cleanup actions done on the monitored computers.
