Netbackup tape usage reports
Created: 26 Jan 2012 | 3 comments
I have a question regarding a report that I am trying to generate. What I am looking for is a way to report average monthly tape usage per media server. We are using OpsCenter and the closest report I can find is the "Media Summary by Media Server" The problem with this report is it only gives a point in time report on what the media server is using, not the average for the month.
So I guess this questions is best suited for companies that provide backup services to multiple departments and ask that those departments pay for their resources. How do you track their tape usage? Do you just keep an eye on it manually or is there a tool better suited to accomplish what I need?
