mrpopgun, it is indeed a good feature request, as our own IT department has also asked about this capability.

Hi Eugene , Veeam ONE stores 5 minute data samples for the past 2 weeks, so it should be enough to make these analysis, but I see your point as well.

If those are unknown, the same report will either need to be re-run again, to do the estimates with the data at hand on the actual usage, where the same is achieved when looking at resources usage on Hosts in vCenter.

I think that once we have this report, any Veeam ONE user can run it prior to provisioning new VMs or just use short time frame (2 weeks) to get any recommendations.
