The licensing fees for the use of NetBackup are based on the total number of Front-End Terabytes (FETBs) protected by NetBackup. Front-End Terabyte Calculation is a way of determining the total terabytes of data NetBackup protects. A Front-End Terabyte (FETB) is one terabyte of protected data. The data can either be on clients or devices where the software is installed or where the software is used to provide backup functionality.
The utility examines the image headers in the NetBackup catalog to determine the terabytes of data that NetBackup protects. Any partial terabytes of data are rounded up to the next whole terabyte. The final total is the sum of the FETBs for each client/policy combination that the analyzer examines. The utility measures the actual data protected. It does not measure the capacity of the storage where the data resides or the total amount of data that is stored on the device.
