After you start managing an app, Astra Control provides details about the app that enables you to identify its communication status (whether Astra Control can communicate with the app), its protection status (whether it's fully protected in case of failure), the pods, persistent storage, and more.

  1. In the Astra Control Center UI, select Applications and then select the name of an app.

  2. Review the information.

    App Status

    Provides a status that reflects whether Astra Control can communicate with the application.

    • App Protection Status: Provides a status of how well the app is protected:

      • Fully protected: The app has an active backup schedule and a successful backup that's less than a week old

      • Partially protected: The app has an active backup schedule, an active snapshot schedule, or a successful backup or snapshot

      • Unprotected: Apps that are neither fully protected or partially protected.

        You can't be fully protected until you have a recent backup. This is important because backups are stored in an object store away from the persistent volumes. If a failure or accident wipes out the cluster and it's persistent storage, then you need a backup to recover. A snapshot wouldn't enable you to recover.

    • Overview: Information about the state of the pods that are associated with the app.

    • Data protection: Enables you to configure a data protection policy and to view the existing snapshots and backups.

    • Storage: Shows you the app-level persistent volumes. The state of a persistent volume is from the perspective of the Kubernetes cluster.

    • Resources: Enables you to verify which resources are being backed up and managed.

    • Activity: Shows the activities related to the app.

      Note You can also view app information starting from the Astra Control Center Dashboard. On the Applications tab under Resource summary, you can select the managed apps, which takes you to the Applications page. After you get to the Applications page, follow the steps outlined above.
