Backup plans and tasks
The Backup plans and tasks view keeps you informed of data protection on a given machine. It lets you monitor and manage backup plans and tasks.
A backup plan is a set of rules that specify how the given data will be protected on a given machine. Physically, a backup plan is a bundle of tasks configured for execution on a managed machine. To find out what a backup plan is currently doing on the machine, check the backup plan execution state. A backup plan state is a cumulative state of the plan’s tasks.The status of a backup plan helps you to estimate whether the data is successfully protected.
A task is a set of sequential actions to be performed on a machine when a certain time comes or certain event occurs. To keep track of a task’s current progress, examine its state. Check a task status to ascertain the result of a task.
