Abstract

See full text

Described are computer-based methods and apparatuses, including computer program products, for system health monitoring. Backup set metadata is received, wherein the backup set metadata comprises information about backup data sets that are received by a backup storage system. One or more processes that process the backup set metadata through an emulated processing flow path are executed, wherein the one or more processes are also implemented in the backup storage system. Two or more potential processing states are determined within the emulated processing flow path. A reason code is determined for each backup set metadata entry of the backup set metadata indicative of a reason that the backup set metadata entry is in a processing state of the two or more potential processing states. A problem with the manner in which the backup set metadata is flowing through the emulated processing flow path is identified based on the reason codes.
