Hi There,

Does anyone know if there is a way to configure a report which will display the size of the volumes on a guest OS for a single VM?

For example, I want to know how big partition C: ; D: ; E: ; F: and G: are on ABC123 and how they have grown over the last month.

I'm currently running the most recent version of VEEAM ONE.

I would also look to have this report auto-generated and sent to a specific admin for that VM if that was possible (not essential but it would make my job easier!!)

Apologies if this is a simple thing to ask, I'm a bit new to VEEAM :oops:

Thank you!! :mrgreen:

Hi Stuart,

For that demand we have Custom Infrastructure report which you can modify up to your needs.
You can select virtual machine as an object and then pick the parameters you need for the virtual disks and their partitions (you might need: "Name", "Virtual Disk:Size Total", "Virtual Disk:Size", Partition: Name, Partition: Capacity (GB), Partition: Free space (GB) etc.).

By the way, we are working on a particular report which is going to include statistical growth information about VMs` partitions for adjustable time interval, calculate daily growth of each partition and number of days to reach preset threshold.
Would you like anything else to be included to that kind of report? Thanks!

Thank you so much for your reply - I have now managed to get the report template created and it is pulling exactly the information I need!

I do, however, have one more question. Each partition on the server I am pulling the information from has different names for each partition. For example, D: is Archive 1 (D:); E: is Archive 2 (E:); F: is SQL_Data (F:) etc. Is there anyway to pull these names into the report? This would make it much easier when viewing the report so the sysadmin can see which partition needs attention and what function it performs.

As I have it at the moment, it will only show me C: ; D: ; E: ; F: etc as the Partition Name.

Thank you again!! :mrgreen:

Hi Stuart,

I don't believe we capture this data from the guest OS, but we will think about adding this to existing properties down the road.

Thanks!

[Merged] Veeam ONE total used disk space

Veeam Logoby Gunnersaurus » Tue Sep 15, 2015 1:50 am

I'm looking for a report to display the total used disk space for each VM. Is there a report I can run to show this information?

Hello! Are we talking about VMware or Hyper-V environment?
Thanks!

Thanks for the reply.
There is a Guest Disk Space Usage report providing that information.

Unfortunately that only displays the total capacity of the disk and the free space. I'm looking for a report showing the amount of space used.

If you would like to know space usage for a VM disk, and not for Guest OS volume, then please take a look at this post from Nikita > Reporting the actual disk usage of VM's

I would like to get the space usage of the OS volume. Can this be done via a custom report?

As far as I remember only free space and total capacity metrics are displayed there.

So just to confirm, there is no way to get the used space in Veeam ONE

You can review that in Veeam ONE Monitor Client at the individual VM tab or at the all VMs tab. As regards the reports, you need to export guest OS disk usage report to Excel via built-in capabilities and then use this formula (Capacity - Free Space) to get the details you need.

As to the already predefined report property for used space, then it should be available in updated version of guest OS disk usage report that is going to be available in v9. Nikita, can confirm that if you want.
