This topic explains the types of inSync alerts and contains instructions on how to view active alerts and how to modify the subscriber list for alerts.

Types of inSync alerts

inSync has the following types of alerts:

Alert Description
Antivirus Activity Detected This alert indicates that the inSync folders are yet to be added to the exclude list.
Antivirus scans on the inSync installation folders and the storage folders can corrupt the data that is being backed up by inSync. Therefore, you must add the folders to the exclude list of the antivirus software that your organization uses.
Backup Success This alert indicates that the backup is successful.

Checkpoint process is slow

This alert is sent if the database checkpoint process for storages that are optimized for performance get slower than the rate at which data is being sent to it for backup by the inSync clients. In such cases, the inSync server stops all new requests for backups and compaction until this situation becomes normal. If the situation becomes critical, it may even stop the existing backup and compaction processes.

Note: This issue is observed if sub-optimal hardware is used for creating storage.
Compaction Completed This alert indicates that compaction of a storage is complete.
