tracking data backup service as a CI
we're looking for best practice for tracking data backups as CIs. Is there a class for this, do we need to create one, or is it not recommended to track backup attributes (device, schedule, retention, media, GB used, etc) in the CMDB?
Re: tracking data backup service as a CI
As far as I know, we have neither discovery for backup systems, nor appropriate CITand links in the class model.
If you'll decide to add your classes, my suggestion is to follow curent UCMDB concept.
Application - under Running Software; backup files under Application Resource.
In my opinion, parameters as device, schedule, retention, media, GB used should be attributes on relevant classes.
Hope this helps.
