About database maintenance

The Database Maintenance option enables you to manage the Backup Exec database and the Desktop and Laptop Option (DLO) database. Each database maintenance operation is performed independently on each database. The Backup Exec database maintains a record of files and data you have configured such as templates and catalogs.

Database maintenance enables you to perform the following:

  • Optimize database size.

  • Delete expired data.

  • Save the contents of the database files.

  • Perform a database consistency check.

Informational alerts are generated at the beginning and the end of the database maintenance process each time database maintenance is performed. The alerts provide details about the type of maintenance that was performed on each database and the amount of time the maintenance took to complete. If the database maintenance process fails, the alert indicates where the failure occurred and the reason for the failure.
