Verify Processes Master Server is OK

There is some way to know if the processes of the Master Server are working properly, not that they are down. I need to know if the system is working properly.
Thank you

If you mean that jobs are actually being scheduled/run you can use the nbpemreq command to check that the scheduler has set jobs up inside the specificed time.

You probably want the -due or -predict option to do this.

Another command I have used in the past for something like this is bperror

The standard questions: Have you checked: 1) What has changed. 2) The manual 3) If there are any tech notes or VOX posts regarding the issue

Hi malossorio,

If you are looking for the master servers processes and services status , you can use the following ways to check.

1. In the bottom of the activity monitor , you have tabs for services and processes which can show their status.

2. From master server --> You can use command : <install_path>\NetBackup\bin\bpps  to check the currently running processes .

 

Please have the below link for bpps command for your reference :

I usally try nbemmcmd -listhost if I am in doubt about the state of Netbackup.

The command query the Netbackup EMM databaser, while it is not a full test, it does provide a quick indication.

Here's what I do to check whether Master Server appears to be basically ok:

df -h
free -h
nbdb_ping
nbemmcmd -listhosts
vmoprcmd
bpdbjobs -summary
bppllist | wc -l
nbpemreq -updatepolicies
nbdevquery -liststs -U | egrep -i "^$|server|state|admin"
nbdevquery -listdp -U | egrep -i "^$|name|status|admin|internal"
nbdevquery -listdv -U -stype PureDisk | egrep -i "^$|name|use|status|admin|internal"

...and possibly other variants of nbdevquery listdv - depending upon whether master is actually a master media.

If you are referring to when you are in the GUI our support vendor has told us that if the Media selection works than you are usually in pretty good shape.  Its the first thing I check when I start Netbackup.

I am sorry, I didn't get your question.

Do you want to check all nbu process up and running on master server?

OR

Do you want to check all nbu process functioning properly or not?

 

Thanks & Regards,
