Is there an easy way to find out how much data you are backing up for a specific period of time?

This issue has been solved. See solution.

Im trying to find out how much data we are backing up each week, using the canned reports in NBU 7.1. I havent found an easy way to get that one number. Is there a report I can run or somewhere in the GUI that will tell me the sum of all our data we backup?

Try Client Backups report.

You can save the output to a text file which can be opened with Excel.

I know you've marked this as solved & have already got the info you want, but if you're running on *nix then you could look at using bpimagelist also to get the info you need (the basis of the Client Backups Report that Marianne suggested)

I used the following little script to determine the amount of data backed up (inc. number of files) for a given list (client_list) of clients over the last 24 hours:

for i in `cat client_list` ; do
echo $i
bpimagelist -hoursago 24 -U -client $i |awk '{file+=$4} {kb+=$5} END {print file" " kb}'
echo "------------"

Altho' I'm not at work to try it I presume you could just use the bpimagelist command with the -A option replacing -client <client>
