Windows Event Log
Magnus Box logs all job messages to the Windows Event Log. The log content is identical to the job log content seen in the Magnus Box Server log browser, or the Magnus Box backup history table, or the Magnus Box API. This should allow you to check for errors and/or ensure that jobs are running on time, by monitoring the Windows Event Log.
However, please note that this only covers client-side jobs, that do actually run. e.g. because "Missed Backup" job entries are generated server-side, they won't appear in the client's event log. It is not feasible to use the Windows Event Log as a complete monitoring solution for your customer base.
The Magnus Box installer also logs some events, that can be used as a proxy for detecting software installation or upgrades.
