Amount of protected data per client and/or datalist/barlist

Hello,

is it possible to list the amount of protected data per client or datalist?

I need a detailed list of the used data per client or datalist for our backup envoirenment for budget planning.

A host_statistics report with timeframes is not enough because of different protection times per datalist and also because of multiple databases on the same host where i need a detailed single statistic per database.

The IDB Objects view would be usefull if its possible to grep this data somehow via cli.

Regards

Hello sofromt, 

I use Client Statistics report. If you select the time frame that include one full backup of each one you can see the data backed up on this server. 

If you choose 7/1 - 7/5 and you run 4 backups for the same job this will show 4 times the calculation of the data. 

Hope this helps you,

This won't include space for month and year backup copy jobs and ends in a lot of manual calculation, that's why i need a list of protected data like the one in the Internal Database menu in the GUI, just need the commands how the GUI gets this info for the CLI, i'm good at bash, no problem to script this if i know where to get the data.

Hello, 

I found this command in the CLI Reference, maybe works as expected for you: 

omnicc -cbl_detail
Displays a report which contains the backup type, object ID, backup name and object size of objects
that are used to calculate the total protected data capacity.

This only shows all Filesystems at once, not for each client, also it doesn't show the target device.

Tapes are more expensive compared to deduplicated sata storage, that's why i need the device where the protected data is stored on, like in the "Internal database" - "Objects" - "[client]" - "[objectname]" view.

Hello,

I would like to make a comment and maybe some suggestions.

Protected data / Used data

This is usually referencing your backup media, and so most of the reports available will be mostly per media, and not per client or backup specification.

And so you may want to check Backup Navigator

Hi Sherman,

the fun part is that i already have the information i want in the gui, so it's obviously there, i just don't know how to get it via CLI.
