Bacula-web provides a summarized output of Bacula jobs
Bacula-web is a php based web program that provides you a summarized output of jobs that have already run. It obtains its information from your catalog database. Aside from a nice graphical display, it provides summaries of your jobs, as well as graphs of job usage. This is a fairly high level bacula management tool. Here are a few points that one user made concerning this important tool
- It is web-based so can be accessed from anywhere.
- It is “read only” users can examine the state of the backups but not write to anything and therefore do no damage
- It packs a phenomenal amount of information into a single web-page - that I credit as being very good design!
The documentation for bacula-web can be found in a separate bacula-web document in the bacula-docs release.
