Veeam 10 [Veeam.Backup.Core.CbackupRepository]::GetRepositoryStoragesSize($repo.Id)

Post by ATIhelpdesk »

On Veeam 9.5 I used [Veeam.Backup.Core.CbackupRepository]::GetRepositoryStoragesSize($repo.Id) to get the repository used space--which I need for a billing script I've written in Powershell. After updating to Veeam 10, it appears GetRepositoryStoragesSize is no longer a member of Veeam.Backup.Core.CbackupRepository. Anyone know how to get the USED SPACE column value from the Backup Repositories page using Powershell?

It's now container under the Info property. Example for my repo titled 'ReFs-PerVM'

Code: Select all

$repo = Get-VBRBackupRepository -Name ReFS-PerVM

$repo.Info.CachedFreeSpace / 1GB
171.453430175781

$repo.Info.CachedTotalSpace / 1TB
1.17169189453125

jhoughes,

Thank you. Alas, subtracting those two values does not give you the USED SPACE column value from the BACKUP INFRASTRUCTURE/Backup Repositories page in the B&R Console. Subtracting those two does give you the amount of space used on the repository storage device. USED SPACE is the amount of space that would be used on a storage device if you restored all of the backed up entities stored in the repository--which is what my billing department wants.

Apologies, my draft got posted by accident while I switched to another task.

The free & capacity space details are now contained under the Info property. Example for my repo titled 'ReFs-PerVM':

Code: Select all


$repo = Get-VBRBackupRepository -Name ReFS-PerVM

$repo.Info.CachedFreeSpace / 1GB
171.453430175781

$repo.Info.CachedTotalSpace / 1TB
1.17169189453125
GUI for comparison:

To get the Used Space size, we have to do some calculation on the backup size of the storage files. This can take a while depending on the size of your repository and backup chains.

Code: Select all

$repo = Get-VBRBackupRepository -Name ReFS-PerVM
$backups = $repo.GetBackups()
$storages = $backups.GetAllStorages()
($storages.stats | Measure-Object -Property backupsize -sum | Select -ExpandProperty Sum) /1TB
1.48376941680908
This returns a bit less than the GUI due to rounding.

jhoughes,

Thank you very much. That does indeed return the value I need. Your quick reply gets some pressure off me, which I do not need.

While not a problem for me right now, this method does not appear to work with scale-out repositories. Neither the repository nor the extents have a GetBackup() method. I will work on that later but, however, if someone has a quick answer, I would be appreciative.

If I remember correctly, Extent object should contain a Repository as a parameter. So, you should be able to access underlying repository as well as its method GetBackups method.

$Extent.Repository.GetBackups()

Thanks!

veremin,

Thank you. I tried your method and; It did not return an error but, it also did not return any records.

Here it the method I figured out:
# Get a list of all backups and select only those whose repository name matches the scale-out repo I want ( $r )
# Notice it is using the GetRepositoryName() method in the Where clause ( sometimes I love Powershell )
$backups = Get-VBRBackup | Where-Object {$_.GetRepositoryName() -eq $r}
# get all the storage records used by the backups
$storages = $backups.GetAllStorages()
# sum the storage records backupsize property
# unlike jhoughes, I am returning the number in bytes. it is divided by 1Tb later in the script
$uspace = $storages.stats | Measure-Object -Property backupsize -sum | Select -ExpandProperty Sum

Thanks to everyone for the help

Yeah, I figured that as well, then, either your script or the one provided Joe (that uses CachedFreeSpace values) should be a way to go. Thanks!

Hi all

I found that this worked for me and give the same results as in the console.

[Veeam.Backup.Core.CBackupRepository]::GetRepositoryBackupsSize($repository.Id.Guid)
