About hardware monitoring

The appliance has the ability to monitor itself for hardware problems. If it detects a problem that needs attention, it uses the following notification mechanisms:

  • Hardware monitoring and alerting from the NetBackup Appliance Web Console.

  • Sending a notification to Veritas using Call Home.

  • Sending an email to the local administrator.

  • Sending an alert to the SNMP manager.

    See the NetBackup Appliance SNMP Trap Reference Guide for a full list of the appliance SNMP traps and recommended actions for when an error occurs.

For a full explanation of the hardware monitoring features, refer to the NetBackup Appliance Administrator's Guide.
