You can check whether the Velero service is currently running on your cluster through the Kubernetes dashboard (accessible through the DKP UI on the Management Cluster), or by running the following kubectl command:

kubectl get all -A | grep velero

If the Velero platform service application is currently running, you can generate diagnostic information about Velero backup and restore operations. For example, you can run the following commands to retrieve, back up, and restore information that you can use to assess the overall health of Velero in your cluster:

velero get schedules
velero get backups
velero get restores
velero get backup-locations
velero get snapshot-locations
