Report to show actual transferred data trends

Post by Daveyd » Nov 21, 2011 7:39 pm

Is there a report to show how how much data per job was written to a target? I backup 100 VMs to an Exagrid appliance. We are running extremely low on the appliance. I would like see how much Veeam deduped data per job or per VM that is written to the Exagrid target in 7 days. Is that possible?

I see Enterprise Manager shows me the Total Size of the jobs but nothing really with the total size. It would be nice to see, in a report, that Jobxxx produced a vib/vbk of xxxGB on xx/xx/xx. I know I can see that type of data in the Properties of the each backup job but nothing in reportable formatting.

No such consolidated report today, but thanks for the idea.

No problem. I would love to see a Veeam trend report of how much actual deduped/compressed data was actually being written to a target. We add VMs to our Veeam backups all the time and it would be good to know our actual backup data growth rate

We have this information in the ehnanced v6 job report, but this is per job - there is no consolidated report across all jobs hitting the same repository, which is what it seems you want.

So, if the v6 job shows me the actual amount of deduped/compressed data per job written to a target, that would be cool. I could always use my trusty calculator to add up all the jobs :)

Here is how the new v6 job report looks like. This is from our production backup server, running v6 beta code.
This job uses reversed incremental backup mode, so the size you see is the produced VBK file size.

This job backs up over Atlantic over 5 Mbps link, so those "bad" performance numbers are actually quite good :wink:

You could roll your own as well :)

Code: Select all

function GetStuff ($Backup) {
	$BackupArchive = Get-VBRBackup | ?{$_.JobName -eq $Backup}
	$BackupFiles = $BackupArchive.GetStorages() | sort CreationTime -descending | select -first 1
	$BI = $BackupFiles.info
	$BS = $BackupFiles.stats
 
	$Backup
	$BackupFiles.FileName
	$BS.BackupSize / 1GB
	$BS.DedupRatio
	$BS.CompressRatio
	$BI.CreationTime.DateTime
}

Get-VBRBackup | foreach {GetStuff $_.JobName}

We are looking forward to the v6 reports as well. Any chance the report will breakdown the info for each VM in the backup job?

Doug, you can see the info for each processed VM right under the Details heading on the picture above (Anton just removed the VM name).

That job only had one VM, which is why the numbers are matching in summary and details.
