Job Log Options

  • Last updated on

Yosemite Server Backup keeps a log of which files it processes while running a job. In addition to viewing the job log from the Status and Logs view, you can configure the job to e-mail it automatically to a designated e-mail address or save the log to a file for later viewing.

Log Type

Yosemite Server Backup has several different levels of logging control to communicate what was protected in a job.

OptionDescription
Log only failed (default)This setting will log only files that could not be backed up because of some failure.
Log only failed and not attempted This setting is log files that could not be backed up because of a failure or because the machine hosting the file was offline or because the job was cancelled.
Log only completed  This setting logs only the files that were successfully protected.
Log allThis setting will log all files the job works on. Using this setting will generate a lot of log entries and can affect the length of the backup process.
None 
 This setting is not recommended. However, using it can speed up the backup process.

Auditing

In some cases, you may want positive confirmation that an objectsuch as a database—was backed up but you do not want to wade through the log file generated by selecting Log All. You can accomplish this by setting the Audit property on the object when you select if for backup. Simply locate the object in the Selection page of the job properties, right-click on the object, select Properties, and then select the Enable Audit box on the property page. By default, all Exchange and SQL databases are audited.
