Hey Guys
Just wondering, how much data is transferred over the network during a reverse incremental, Incremental backup. If looking at the console is it only the transferred data or is there other network traffic based on reading changes etc.
The reason i ask is we are moving to a datacentre with a 1Gbps network connection. Whilst we are replicating over all the VM's we would like to keep our veeam server at our office backing up to tape. Just trying to work out if we are going to have backup delay issues. We are currently running all our servers on a 1gbps link now however the bottleneck will change from switched ports to a single link

Hey, Luke.

Here is a short explanation of job statistics:
Data size — total size of all VM disks processed by the job.
Read — amount of data read from the datastore by the source-side Data Mover Service prior to applying compression and deduplication.
Transferred size is the amount of data the backup job transferred to the destination.

Amount of transferred space is same for forward and reverse increments. Additional metadata should not be an issue.
