! You can test the new SQL version for Zabbix 5.X: https://github.com/romainsi/zabbix-VB-R-SQL.

VEEAM-Backup-Recovery-jobs

This template use the VEEAM Backup & Replication PowerShell Cmdlets to discover and manage VEEAM Backup jobs, Veeam BackupSync, Veeam Tape Job, Veeam Endpoint Backup Jobs, All Repositories and Veeam Services.

  • Work with Veeam backup & replication V7 to V9.5
  • Work with Zabbix 3.X (english template only for V3.X) & 4.X
  • French & English translation for the Template

Explanation of how it works:

The "Result Export Xml Veeam" item sends a powershell command (with nowait option) to the host to create an xml file of the result of the Get-VBRBbackupSession, Get-VBRJob, Get-VRBBackup and Get-VBREPJob commands that is stored under C:\Program Files\Zabbix Agent\scripts\TempXmlVeeam\*.xml (variable $pathxml). Then, each request imports the xml to retrieve the information.

Why? Because the execution of this command can take between 30 seconds and more than 3 minutes (depending on the history and the number of tasks) and I end up with several scripts running for a certain time and the execution is in timeout.

Items

  • Number of tasks jobs
  • Number of running jobs
  • Result Export Xml Veeam

Discovery Jobs

1. Veeam Jobs:

  • Result of each jobs
  • Execution status for each jobs
  • Number of VMs Failed in each jobs
  • Number of VMs Warning in each jobs
  • Type for each jobs
  • Number of VMs in each jobs
  • Size included in each jobs (disabled by default)
  • Size excluded in each jobs (disabled by default)
  • Next run time of each jobs
  • Last end time of each jobs
  • Last run time of each jobs

2. Veeam Tape Jobs:

  • Result of each jobs
  • Execution status for each jobs

3. Veeam BackupSync Jobs:

  • Result of each jobs
  • Execution status for each jobs
  • Number of VMs Failed in each jobs
  • Number of VMs Warning in each jobs
  • Type for each jobs
  • Number of VMs in each jobs
  • Size included in each jobs (disabled by default)
  • Size excluded in each jobs (disabled by default)

4. Veeam Jobs Endpoint Backup:

  • Result of each jobs
  • Execution status for each jobs
  • Next run time of each jobs

5. Veeam Jobs Replication Backup:

  • Result of each jobs
  • Execution status for each jobs
  • Type for each jobs

6. Veeam Repository:

  • Remaining space in repository for each repo
  • Total space in repository for each repo

Discovery Jobs By VMs

1. VEEAM Backup By VMs:

  • Result of each VMs in each Jobs

2. VEEAM BackupSync By VMs:

  • Result of each VMs in each Jobs

Triggers

  • [WARNING] => Export XML Veeam Error

Discovery Veeam Jobs

  • [HIGH] => Job has FAILED
  • [AVERAGE] => Job has completed with warning
  • [HIGH] => Job is still running (8 hours)
  • [WARNING] => Backup Veeam data recovery problem

Discovery Veeam Tape Jobs

  • [HIGH] => Job has FAILED
  • [AVERAGE] => Job has completed with warning
  • [HIGH] => Job is still running (8 hours)
  • [INFORMATION] => No data recovery for 24 hours

Discovery Veeam BackupSync Jobs

  • [HIGH] => Job has FAILED
  • [AVERAGE] => Job has completed with warning
  • [INFORMATION] => No data recovery for 24 hours

Discovery Veeam Jobs Endpoint Agent

  • [HIGH] => Job has FAILED
  • [AVERAGE] => Job has completed with warning
  • [HIGH] => Job is still running (8 hours)
  • [INFORMATION] => No data recovery for 24 hours

Discovery Veeam Replication Jobs

  • [HIGH] => Job has FAILED
  • [AVERAGE] => Job has completed with warning
  • [INFORMATION] => No data recovery for 24 hours

Discovery Veeam Repository

  • [HIGH] => Less than 2Gb remaining on the repository

Discovery Veeam Services (this discovery exists in standard Zabbix Windows hosts template so it removed from here to avoid conflicts and duplicates)

  • [AVERAGE] => Veeam Service is down for each services

Setup

  1. Install the Zabbix agent on your host

  2. Copy zabbix_vbr_job.ps1 in the directory : C:\Program Files\Zabbix Agent\scripts\ (create folder if not exist). Also you can use any other directory, but change UserParameter=vbr[*] below then.

  3. Add the following line to your Zabbix agent configuration file:

    EnableRemoteCommands=1
    UnsafeUserParameters=1
    ServerActive="IP or DNS Zabbix Server"
    Timeout=(to adjust if items arrive in timeout and don't forget to ajust the zabbixserver timeout)
    UserParameter=vbr[*],powershell -NoProfile -ExecutionPolicy Bypass -File "C:\Program Files\Zabbix Agent\scripts\zabbix_vbr_job.ps1" "$1" "$2" "$3"
    
  4. ** In Zabbix : Administration, General, Regular Expression:

    1. Add a new regular expression:
      • Name: Veeam
      • Expression Type: Result is TRUE
      • Expression: Veeam.*
  5. Import TemplateVEEAM-BACKUPtrapper.xml file into Zabbix.

  6. Purge and clean Template OS Windows if is linked to the host (you can relink it after).

  7. Associate "Template VEEAM - Backup and Replication" to the host.

  8. Wait about 1h for discovery, XML file to be generated and first informations retrieves.

! If you use old version (< v3) please Purge and clean "Template VEEAM-BACKUP trapper".

With a large or very large backup tasks history, the XML size can be more than 500 MB (so script finish in timeout) you can reduce this with this link : https://www.veeam.com/kb1995 Use first : "Changing Session history retention" and if this is not enough, "Clear old job sessions".

Note: For Windows 7, Windows 2008 and older hosts to make the template work install Powershell v3 (or newer) manually.
