One of the coolest new features in Nagios XI 2014, is the Scheduled Backups Component. Backups may not sound cool and exciting, but in the event that your Nagios system has a major issue, or you want to restore on a fresh system, having off-disk backups can be a lifesaver. The Scheduled Backups Component also makes backups extremely easy and straight forward! Are you excited yet? If not, you’ll get there once we are done going through the many available options.
To get started head over to your local Nagios XI machine, and log into the web interface. Once you’re in, open up the Admin page and select Scheduled Backups, down on the bottom left area of your interface. You should see all three backup options are initially disabled, and there is currently no last backup size, as none have been run.
