Backup Billing Report - Veeam Agent

Post by Dreadnought » Jul 18, 2017 3:57 pm 1 person likes this post

Is it possible to generate a billing report for Veeam Agent backups that go to a B&R Server? I can see all the backups and backup copy jobs that are on the B&R that arent created using the Veeam agent but nothing if the backups are created by the Veeam Agent.

I've tried re-scanning all the repository's and the entire infrastructure but nothing visible in the billing report.

thanks

Hello Jerry,
Veeam ONE v9.5 is not integrated with Backup Agents, that is planned to v10. So if you have any other reports where you want to see backup agents, that`s the best time and place to let us know.
Thanks!

Jerry, what kind of billing option you're looking for? Do you want to charge per consumed space, backup Agent or something else?

As a workaround for now, please take a look at Veeam Availability Console billing options.

The person in our org that handles chargeback usually contacts me, I run the Backup Billing report and send it to them every quarter. We've got a couple of the physical agents running in our environment, and they just asked me for our repository usage for the physicals. I dug through VeeamONE and didn't find anything, so I went through and collected the numbers manually.

I'd really like to see a Backup Billing report (or any report) that would include our VM environment and the physical agents to show the how much space each VM and agent is using on our repos.

Got it. Thanks for the explanation, Jay.
We are planning integrating more reports with agents in the next update.
