This means that the job is currently engaged in a job process in relation to the configured job. you can however view the details of the job... like the job rate and byte count.. even which files are currently being backed up. 

To view details for active jobs
1 On the Backup and Restore tab or the Storage tab, double-click the server
or the storage device on which the job is running.
2 In the left pane, click Jobs.
3 Right-click the job, and then click View Job Activity
This is an excerpt from the Admin guide found on page 248 .. See link below for a copy if you would like for your record 

I hope this posting was helpful

Double click on the job and take a look at the joblog.  If the statistics are being updated, it means that the job is still actively doing work.  If there is no update, it means that the job has hung.
