Backup Status Report
The Backup Status report shows status and error information on jobs completed within the specified time period. If an error has occurred, a short explanation of the error is included.  
# cd /usr/openv/netbackup/bin/admincmd
# ./bperror -U -backstat -s info [-d <start_date> <start_time> -e <end_date> <end_time>]

DOCUMENTATION: What are the different fields in "bpimagelist -l" output?

Elapsed time is one of the output fields....

Also, bpimagelist -L will give these fields in a more readable form.

You could be looking at a lot of output so may want to "filter" your results somehow!


bpimagelist -l -d 06/07/2011 00:00:00 -e 06/08/2011 00:00:00 -client client | awk '/^IMAGE/ {print $2, $7, $15}'

will produce output only of client name, policy & elapsed time (seconds) for backups between those times.
