new idea 29 Jan 2015
I'd like to request there be some load monitoring put in place on the appliances. When there's a runaway process, too many jobs are running against the appliance, a process is hung and preventing others from completing, spoold is overloaded, etc. , we should be informed so that we can investigate further. The appliances are pretty beefy these days so overloading one is certainly harder but we ...

Since this seems to be a recurring issue NetBackup should start doing its own checks and automated ...
