What is the best way of monitoring whether or not mmbackup has managed to complete a backup successfully?

Traditionally one use a TSM monitoring solution of your choice to make sure nodes where backing up (I am assuming mmbackup is being used in conjunction with TSM here).

However mmbackup does not update the backup_end column in the filespaceview table (at least in 4.2) which makes things rather more complicated.

The best I can come up with is querying the events table to see if the client schedule completed, but that gives a false sense of security as the schedule completing does not mean the backup completed as far as I know.

What solutions are you all using, or does mmbackup in 5.x update the filespaceview table?
