Monitor the Progress
Table of Contents
Elastio jobs execute background tasks, including deploying Elastio resources, backup and restore operations and integrity checks. Background jobs are initiated when performing agentless EBS and EC2 operations and integrity checks. Background jobs run in the same account as the Elastio. They also automatically run in the correct region for the resources respectively. Other kinds of jobs are foreground backups and restores, such as block, file or stream.
All jobs show up on the Jobs page which can be accessible through the On Boarding page. The page displays the current status or the job and its result. The Jobs table shows a Job Type, its Task, the Date the operation was scheduled on, the Date of its completion and the Status of the Job.
