How to monitor Addon

I use Samba Backup addon for HA backup. I would like to display the info on UI such as(if all of them are possible somehow):-
Backup Status: Running or Not Running Note:- I am not looking for Addon Status
Last Finished:
Backups local: # of backups
Backups remote: # of backups
Warning: display a list of warnings

Any help is appreciated and thank you.

Pretty sure these are the only sensors available:

type: entities
title: Samba Backup
  - entity: sensor.samba_backup
    icon: mdi:file-replace-outline
    name: Backup Status
  - attribute: backups_local
    entity: sensor.samba_backup
    icon: mdi:file-outline
    name: Local Backups
    type: attribute
  - attribute: backups_remote
    entity: sensor.samba_backup
    icon: mdi:file-move-outline
    name: Remote Backups
    type: attribute
  - attribute: total_backups_succeeded
    entity: sensor.samba_backup
    icon: mdi:file-check-outline
    name: Succeded Backups
    type: attribute
  - attribute: total_backups_failed
    entity: sensor.samba_backup
    icon: mdi:file-cancel-outline
    name: Failed Backups
    type: attribute
  - attribute: last_backup
    entity: sensor.samba_backup
    icon: mdi:file-clock-outline
    name: Last Backup
    type: attribute
show_header_toggle: false

Though I have not checked for quite a while.

EDIT: seems to be up to date:

Isn’t that all in the addon ui?

What do you mean?

There is no UI for Samba Backup.

Sorry I was thinking of the google drive addon.

Having an issue when Addon is not running it does not show anything and bunch of lines with Entity not available.
How do you show in this case ?

I don’t turn the addon off.

For me Addon is not off either. What I meant was it will only show entities info when it is actually doing the backup- if that makes sense. When backlup is finished entities show error as Entity not available.

Ah. I remember that issue now. You need to add this startup automation:

- id: 46ba1b3e-14bc-4237-abb6-e9146eacc575
  alias: 'Startup'
    platform: homeassistant
    event: start
  - service: hassio.addon_stdin
      addon: 15d21743_samba_backup
      input: restore-sensor

Wow, that worked like a charm. I wonder how many more tips are out there that I will come across.
Thanks much!!
