I’m wondering what your ideas are on backup reporting.
E.g. a daily status email like so would be nice (example on android notification screen):
MoSCoW-method loosely applied
M: daily mail stating if all is OK, if there are warnings or failures (also for rclone remote storage)
M: part of the kopia repository server
M: show a visualisation of all snapshots (kopia snapshot list --all) granted access to (using ACL’s)
M Set drift and only report outside drift time. E.g. daily snapshots should set a warning after 1 day, and a critical after 5 days.
M Show an overview of storage space in use (bonus: show the amount of storage before deduplication and compression just to make you feel good)
S browse and mount snapshots directly (so this could be integrated into the KopiaUI’s) under ‘reporting’ or ‘status overview’ in the context menu or something.
notification policy at all levels (global, per user, per host, per path) that specifies
- what to send,
- when to send it (periodically, on success, on failure) and
how (email, slack, pushover, local notifications, mqtt etc.)
W centrally managed service by a company (could be useful, but should not be forced)
Before you know it one has a plentitude of hosts and policies all snapshotting away at the speed of light, locally and remote.
What sort of things Must, Should, Could and Wont be in there in your preferences?
PS I’ll harvest and summarize input here into a longlist of preferences to inspire future work.
