What is ActiveVisor™?

ActiveVisor™ manages and monitors the state of ActiveImage Protector™ agents for system administrators to maintain system continuity. By collecting information from distributed agents over the network, ActiveVisor™ provides a visual representation of overall system protection, sends email notifications of client backup status, monitors storage space availability of devices, and can administer deployment of agents, schedules, and tasks. System administrators save time, and reduce costs by managing ActiveImage Protector™ agent settings providing peace of mind that continuous and reliable backups are performed.

  • Administrators can manage the client machines from any location by using the browser-based console.
  • In the event of a system failure, ActiveVisor™ is built with a simplified user interface that displays a table with information on machine specific failures so that system recovery can be initiated immediately.
  • When an unexpected delay in the backup task occurs, the console displays an easy-to-understand metric of backup status.
