How to get VMWare Snapshot file size?



I need to create a flow to get snapshots exceeding 5GB on our VMWare server... I can retrieve the snapshot name but I am finding it hard how to retrieve its file size.


Im not an expert in VMWare, I just ask Google for any questions I have in my mind... so please help me.


Thanks in advance.

Re: How to get VMWare Snapshot file size?

You can use the CmdLet "Get-Snapshot" available in vSphere PowerCLI.



Note: The disk size of the snapshots is retrieved only if you have the "Datastore/Browse datastore" privilege to the datastore where the shapshot is located
