Indeed CBT may hep, but the problem is, CBT information are written to the CBT file only upon snapshot creation (our colleague Timo wrote an amazing post explaining this, I suggest everyone to read it: http://www.veeamhub.io/2017/01/backup-c ... explained/) so there's no way to know how much data a VM will consume, without first snapshot it.
Not to say again there's no value in the idea, but there are many more consideration than simple VM size.

Spex wrote:If you use one tag to describe the complete processing I understand your concern about complicated job handling.
In our environment each tag has only one meaning. we have tags for schedule time, guest processing, retention, useraccount for guest agent.
So you can combine them all to your need. For each backuptime I have a backupjob - the rest is done by tags within the job.
Yes, we use several tags for different kinds of jobs (repo, app processing or not, scheduling, retention, etc.).

However this does remove some of the flexibility the tags system offers. Because when you change the tags on those VM's they will still be processed by that job you added them manually too.
