EMC Networker KM for PATROL constantly monitors the key areas of the backup and recovery software to ensure backups are properly performed. Any backup or restore error is instantly brought to your attention through the centralized TrueSight Operations Mgmt platform to let you take corrective actions. The solution more especially monitors:
Server availability: status of all the processes.
Log files: monitoring of the daemon.log and messages files, size, etc.
Pending Media Events: monitoring of the media mount requests
Bootstrap Messages: bootstrap settings verification, recommendations, etc.
Client Indexes: number of entries, utilization as a percentage and index size.
Devices: status of mounted volumes and history of volume mounts.
Save Groups and Save Sets: status, progress, size and duration
All the information collected is grouped into application classes and displayed in your TrueSight Operations Mgmt. Alarms and warnings inform you when a suspicious behavior is detected; thus, allowing you to quickly and clearly identify peaks, troughs and trends in the performance of your backup resources before it critically impacts your business.

Remote monitoring is required for all servers or appliances on which no PATROL Agent can be installed. This feature is also interesting if you lack resources or time to deploy a PATROL Agent and the NetWorker KM on several servers since it allows to monitor multiple hosts from a single PATROL Agent host (see Remote Monitoring Requirements for detailed information).
Also, EMC NetWorker KM for PATROL 3.0.00 can monitor consecutive backups at save set level under each group client. The solution can easily be configured to monitor failed, successful or all save sets (see Configuring the Save Sets Monitoring for detailed information).
