Repository size

Post by tomcec »

Hello, we are using V6 (w/ patch 3) and we are trying to understand how to extract information about how much free space in repositories is left.
We are using Windows repositories and we tried with:

get-vbrbackuprepository

but for how deep we may drill down the tree of methods and properties we have not seen a way to extract this info.
Can anyone give us some hint?

Thanks so much,
Tommaso

This is the cmdlet I use for the vPC Army Report that you can't tweak to your needs

Code: Select all

function Get-vPCRepoInfo {
[CmdletBinding()]
	param (
		[Parameter(Position=0, ValueFromPipeline=$true)]
		[PSObject[]]$Repository
		)
	Begin {
		$outputAry = @()
		[Reflection.Assembly]::LoadFile("C:\Program Files\Veeam\Backup and Replication\Veeam.Backup.Common.dll") | Out-Null
		function Build-Object {param($name, $path, $free, $total)
			$repoObj = New-Object -TypeName PSObject -Property @{
					Target = $name
					storepath = $path
					StorageFree = [Math]::Round([Decimal]$free/1GB,2)
					StorageTotal = [Math]::Round([Decimal]$total/1GB,2)
					FreePercentage = [Math]::Round(($free/$total)*100)
				}
			return $repoObj
		}
	}
	Process {
		foreach ($r in $Repository) {
			if ($r.GetType().Name -eq [String]) {
				$r = Get-VBRBackupRepository -Name $r
			}
			if ($r.Type -eq "WinLocal") {
				$Server = $r.GetHost()
				$FileCommander = [Veeam.Backup.Core.CRemoteWinFileCommander]::Create($Server.Info)
				$storage = $FileCommander.GetDrives([ref]$null) | ?{$_.Name -eq $r.Path.Substring(0,3)}
				$outputObj = Build-Object $r.Name $r.Path $storage.FreeSpace $storage.TotalSpace
			}
			elseif ($r.Type -eq "LinuxLocal") {
				$Server = $r.GetHost()
				$FileCommander = new-object Veeam.Backup.Core.CSshFileCommander $server.info
				$storage = $FileCommander.FindDirInfo($r.Path)
				$outputObj = Build-Object $r.Name $r.Path $storage.FreeSpace $storage.TotalSize
			}
			elseif ($r.Type -eq "CifsShare") {
				$fso = New-Object -Com Scripting.FileSystemObject
				$storage = $fso.GetDrive($r.Path)
				$outputObj = Build-Object $r.Name $r.Path $storage.AvailableSpace $storage.TotalSize
			}
			$outputAry = $outputAry + $outputObj
		}
	}
	End {
		$outputAry
	}
}
Usage:

Code: Select all

Get-VBRBackupRepository -Name "My Repo" | Get-vPCRepoInfo
Sample Output:

Code: Select all

storepath      : E:\Backups
FreePercentage : 63
StorageTotal   : 824.00
StorageFree    : 522.05
Target         : My Repo

Thomas, thanks for your immediate and quick reply. Works perfectly for me. I'll just try to convert the output in a sort of csv format (not actually a guru in powershell so ... it could take a while) and post it here.

Thanks again,
Tommaso

You could do this

Code: Select all

#Save output to CSV
Get-VBRBackupRepository -Name "My Repo" | Get-vPCRepoInfo | Export-Csv C:\Test.csv -NoTypeInformation
#Open the file with default viewer
Invoke-Expression C:\Test.csv

Hi Thomas,
I try to follow you and I use Veeam BR9. on Windows Server 2008R2 with Powershell v4.
but unfortunately I got this error for about 'Create' method of "[Veeam.Backup.Core.CRemoteWinFileCommander]".

Code: Select all

-------------------------------------------
could you or everyone guide me to fix this issue.

regards and Thank you,

The workaround provided above used unsupported and undocumented approach that has ceased to exist already.

What information are you trying to get? Repository utilization? Don't you have a Veeam ONE deployed by any chance?

Thanks.

You can use this tool to get general idea on how much space will be occupied on a repository. Thanks.
