This issue has been solved. See solution.
I need to know the elapse time of a backup ran few days back.
I have policy name, client name and schedule name.
 
Can we use bpdbjobs any how ?
 
This can be check with Client Backups report from GUI, but not sure about the command.
 
Please let me know if any command is there.

Thanks Nagalla,
 
I ran this form one of our Unix master server, and get the below listed.
As the first two images belongs to a backup of different steam of a client.
To get the totla elapse time, I need to ran the command for each backup id, pleas correct me if I am wrong.
 
As I did it for first two images.
 
Or any other method we can calculate total elapse time.

the elapsed time is for specific image/backup stream.. if you need to have the elapsed time for all you need to run the command for all..

also try from GUI--Reports--Client backup.. that will give you in human readable formate which you can export to Excle.

Try using bperror -U -backstat -s info [-d <start_date> <start_time> -e <end_date> <end_time>]

You can refer to TECH20462 for more information on that.
