Running Live Optics scripts to gather NetWorker files

Live Optics Agent

Overview

Live Optics allows you, your Dell EMC technologists, or Dell EMC partner consultants to understand vital information about your NetWorker environment. To start, it is important to gather the pertinent data files of your backup environment. Live Optics provides you with a simple process to gather, parse and, ultimately, present your data in a clear and understandable way, so that you can make informed decisions to optimize your backup infrastructure.

The collector and file-gathering program is signed and verified by the Dell Certificate Authority. The file-gathering program uses the backup application’s specific commands to generate these files. Publicly available commands for the backup application and files aggregated during the pre-processing phase of collection will reside in your chosen path or, by default, at:
