New user of Duplicati i’m searching for some informations in order to monitor duplicati backup status:
I’m using PRTG for monitoring.
there’s a script in github but it does not allow the server to be password protected and needs an access to api, which, in case of a remote installation, can be a problem.
I may have missed something but log file, no matter verbosity, does not return simple backup status.
What i need:
To know the backup status: running, warning, error, OK
else by running a script locally or using the infos the server can send.
TLDR: i just need a way to retreive, in the simpliest way possible, the status of the backup using the existing tools provided by duplicati.
You can have %PARSEDRESULT% (Error, Warning, Success) put into the email body or subject line.
You can also get ParsedResult (and other info) from the email body using JSON output format option.
If you’re willing to use Scripting options, a simplified backup status (and other information) is available.
You would have to figure out some way for a custom script to make its information available to PRTG.
