Backup passive checks

These checks ensure that the backups have run within the last day (specifically within the last 28 hours).


If the backup has failed, you can try re-running it on the associated machine.

sudo su - govuk-backup -c '/usr/bin/setlock /etc/unattended-reboot/no-reboot/mongodb-s3backup /usr/local/bin/mongodb-backup-s3 daily'

NOTE: You might want to run this in a screen session, as it can take a while.
