Backup list fields
Field Description


A backup name. Filled in automatically when performing a backup according to the backup_<type>_<start_date>_<start_time> template, where:

  • <type> — backup type (see Type below);

  • <start_date> — backup start date in the YYYYMMDD format;

  • <start_time> — backup start time in the HHmmss format.


A backup type. Possible values:

  • full — full backup;

  • diff — differential backup;

  • incr — incremental backup.

Start time

A backup status. Possible values:

  • init — the backup is being initialized.

  • running — the backup is running.

  • terminating — the backup is being terminated.

  • resume — the backup is being resumed.

  • failed — the backup launch is failed.

  • done — the backup launch is successful.

Above the table with backups, there are filters that you can use to select backups with a specific status or type. To use a filter, open the drop-down list Status or Type and select the desired value of the backup status or the backup type accordingly.
