Backup runtimes per VM's for trending

Post by filipsmeets »

Hi guys

I'm looking for a way to get the backup runtimes per VM so I can do some trending on the numbers.

This is what I got so far:

Code: Select all

$sessions = Get-VBRBackupSession |where{$_.Name -like ("Backup") -and $_.Name -notlike "*Retry*" -and $_.Result -eq "Success"}

$runtimesVMs = @()

foreach($session in $sessions)
{
    $taskSessions = $session | Get-VBRTaskSession

    foreach($task in $taskSessions)
        {
            $row = "" | Select Name,Date,Runtime
            $row.Name = $task.Name
            $row.Date = $task.Progress.StartTimeLocal.Date.ToShortDateString()
            $row.Runtime = [math]::Round((($task.Progress.StopTimeLocal - $task.Progress.StartTimeLocal).TotalHours),1)
            $runtimesVMs += $row
        }
}
$runtimesVMs
It's working but there are some weird negative numbers in the result.

Rather than perform the math, you should just get the 'WorkDuration' sub-property for the 'WorkDetails' property of the task session.

For example, if your TaskSession is in the '$TaskSession' variable, do this:

Code: Select all

      try {
        $JobSessionDuration = $TaskSession.JobSess.SessionInfo.Progress.Duration.ToString()
      }
      catch {
        $JobSessionDuration = ''
      }
The try/catch block is to gather details only from any sessions with valid duration values (essentially, leave it blank for failed sessions).

If you also need the overall job session info, you can get that at the same time as well:

Code: Select all

      try {
        $TaskSessionDuration = $TaskSession.WorkDetails.WorkDuration.ToString()
      }
      catch {
        $TaskSessionDuration = ''
      }
I include both of these details in one of my Session report scripts which I will upload to VeeamHub soon, as it is getting covered during my upcoming VeeamON session.

Thanks for the tip. Must of overlooked it.
$task.progress.duration seems to be the same as the one you mention.

I've also added a filter on the tasksessions to only take the ones with a taskAlgorithm "Increment". Not sure what the taskAlgorithm "Full" is but it showed a VM size of 0 so it wasn't useful.
Added some more data that could be of interest.

Code: Select all

$sites = import-csv
$runtimesVMs = @()
foreach($site in $sites)
{
    $sessions = Get-VBRBackupSession |where{$_.Name -like $site -and $_.Name -notlike "*Retry*" -and $_.Result -eq "Success"}

    foreach($session in $sessions)
    {
        $taskSession = $session | Get-VBRTaskSession |where{$_.Workdetails.TaskAlgorithm -eq "Increment"}

        foreach($t in $taskSession)
            {
                $row = "" | Select Job,VM,Date,TotalVMSize,TransferedSize,Runtime,avgSpeed
                $row.Job = $session.JobName
                $row.VM = $t.Name
                $row.Date = $t.Progress.StartTimeLocal.Date.ToShortDateString()
                $row.TotalVMSize = $t.Progress.TotalSize /1gb
                $row.TransferedSize = [math]::Round(($t.Progress.TransferedSize /1gb),2)
                $row.Runtime = [math]::Round(($t.Progress.Duration.TotalHours),1)
                $row.avgSpeed = [math]::Round(($t.Progress.AvgSpeed /1mb),2)
                $runtimesVMs += $row
            }
    }
}
$runtimesVMs | Sort VM,Date | Export-Csv

Does somebody know if the transform operations like merging and so on are included in the runtimes I'm using in my report?

I would like to split up the runtimes in actual backup copy runtimes and transform operation runtimes. Is that possible?

Figured this out myself.
You can compare the duration time of the session with the sum of the tasks in that session. The session duration time includes the merge operations.

Hi @filipsmeets,

My apologies, I was actually in the middle of testing your question but been busy with numerous tasks also.
That's correct. Glad you could figure it out anyways.

Thanks,
Oleg
