How do I monitor the copy cluster process?

We have scheduled the vbr copycluster using cron job. The job occasionally fails due to various reasons.
For replicating objects, I know that there is a table, v_monitor.REMOTE_REPLICATION_STATUS, that can be used for monitoring. Is there a similar table for copycluster monitoring?

    You can monitor it using vbr.log. progress percentage will be written to log. As of now there are no tables to monitor the same.

  • Thanks SruthiA.
    Is it possible to view the logs via management console? Would it be possible to set some kind of alerts when error happens?

    You cannot view them using management console. Logs are present at path you have set for tmpDir in .ini file. You can grep for 'error' word and create a cron job to set up alerts.
